Wendy McCauley Rifkin is represented by Sur Le Mur in the Pacific Design Center in Los Angeles, the only fine artist among the many well known street artists and photographers in the gallery. She creates commissioned female nude portraits either in a loose gestural style done with a palette knife, or in a traditional realism/Old Masters style. The artist has a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Rhode Island School of Design. She also studied at the Art Students League in New York and Parsons School of Design. Wendy now lives in Los Angeles with her husband and two children. The artist also designed a jewelry and belt collection, MCC Jewelry and Accessories Collection and was the owner and designer of an apparel company, represented in stores across the country and overseas. She became a full-time mom and increasingly became interested in painting the female figure and representing the miraculous female form in art. She continues to freelance as a photographer and designer.
