I just learned that this afternoon Sister Wendy died at the age of 88. She rose to fame in the early 1990’s. She was hired by the BBC to present Art and she did so in front of a camera, without any script or notes in the most natural way. She was an Art historian and had an in depth knowledge of Art and she spoke well, bringing Art to people in a simple manner, inviting you to observe and get the deeper meaning in what the artist was trying to convey. She spoke on all kinds of Art works did so in an intelligent enlighten manner.


I often looked at her video on YouTube to get inspiration for my own presentation in the Art Gallery or when speaking with school groups. She was a gem for the Art World and for us all. She lived at the Carmelite Convent of Quidenham in Norfolk. You can see Sister Wendy on one of her presentation. YouTube has many other videos on her presentations.

Thank you Sister Wendy.
