Until recently, an active committee member and secretary of the Lake House Art Centre, Wensley is passionate about art.  

She has always been creative -  making clothes, weaving, macrame, pottery and is now both creating jewellery and painting.


Other hobbies include gardening and wildlife.  She is a long standing and active member of Forest and Bird, SOSSI and Tiritiri Matangi Sanctuaries.  


Taking inspiration from memories of places she has visited, she constructs her paintings and adds her own imaginary aspects, creating a patchwork of land, sky and mind.

Wensley's work has received merit awards and her talent recognised when she was the recipient of the 2015 Gordon Harris Painting Award.
