This is a portrait of my childhood friend, Diane, who reached out to me after forty-plus years. We have established a wonderful adult friendship because she corresponded. This painting represents then and now, recalling both the street we grew up on, and a recent visit.

Making Portraits! by Wendy Ackerman

By Wendy Ackerman


 What fun to create portraits of those I know…to convey their character from my  perception. Emphasizing their personalities using gestural pose, composition, facial expression, and  color I begin.My first subject is  a  woman who embodies Super Powers to accomplish all, totally committed to issues and people she believes in.With grace, dignity, compassion, and a ‘Yes’ attitude this ‘Go Getter ‘ ‘Sets The Bar’!!

Designing with limits can be exhilarating!It can also be good for the environment.For example, while a challenge, by using leftovers from carpet installations (wool or nylon) a fresh idea is conceived!

Reimagined, artfully repurposed,  an area rug is created.

Current project by Wendy Ackerman

I am excited about the visual and practical properties of a wall hanging I am designing.

Colorful, textured, modern, and happy. 

Incredible possibilities for a variety of applications; in size, number, and shape.

No glare, light weight, dimensional, warm and tactile.

A new product with great potential!
