Short Bio:

Wendie Love’s artwork is primarily influenced by the role of the form and function in art as

it enables the building of community. She works to provide an environment and encouragement for

young people to imagine and create. Valuing the creative process over the product, she strives to

contagiously instill in her students a love research, planning, and the full embrace of the accidental.

For her, clay more than other media, provides endless opportunities for technical research, historical

appreciation, creative problem solving, and perpetual learning. Art is about process:

establish/recognize a problem, imagine potential solutions, create a solution, evaluate and reflect on

the quality of the solution, and repeat. In art and in life, she seeks to experience and share a passion

for learning while building a creative community. She teaches at Farragut High School in Knoxville,

TN.
