Wendy, and gallery dog, Piper


Although she was born in Baltimore, Maryland, Wendy always felt the call of the islands. Abandoning her studies at Virginia Commonwealth University to follow her tropical infatuation, Tatter lived in the West Indies, Mexico, Costa Rica, and Brasil.


Tatter was introduced to the art of batik in Mexico while attending Instituto Allende. Fascinated by the technique, she has developed a style all her own. Her work often reflects the people and places from her travels and has been

exhibited and collected worldwide.


Wendy is the recipient of the ROWITA Award. The Dr. Gail Pflaster ROWITA (Recognizing Outstanding Women in the Arts) is a lifetime achievement award for women in our community who have made significant contributions to the arts. They are chosen from nominations that have been submitted

by members of the community.


Wendy is now working full-time in her studio making new original batiks and is

accepting commissions and orders upon request.
