Wendy Sharpe is one of Australia’s most acclaimed and awarded artists. She has been awarded an extensive list of prizes, residencies and scholarships; these include winning: the Archibald prize, the Sulman Prize, the Portia Geach Memorial Award, the Gold Award and a commission from the Australian War Memorial Award as an Australian Official War Artist, the first woman since WW11.
