Toni Wengler describes her art as an interpretation of what she sees in nature and in travels. She loves to tell a story with her paintings, and has an eye for color and detail.
During her travels around the world, she uses her camera to capture places and events, creating a sketchbook of ideas from which she creates original paintings, using pastels, acrylics, and colored pencils. She paints that which gives life special meaning to her, in the hope that others will feel touched by the beauty of what she sees. Helen Keller said, ”The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.” This is what she hopes to achieve with her art.
Toni’s friend, Doris Barks, a portrait artist, when referring to her work, said, ”You have an eye for detail, intuitive use of line and design in your composition, as well as gorgeous color, which gives great clarity to your highly individualistic and refreshing artwork. Your art would be a lovely addition in any décor – office or home.”
Toni was born in McAllen, Texas, grew up in Houston, and spent most of her adult life in Dallas. She is married to her husband, Ken, and they have two children and four grand-children, ages 1, 4, 12 and 15. Ken’s work enabled the family to live in both England and Australia, for a period of time.
