Wendy Little is a painter, photographer, musician, and writer based in Los Angeles. Little's influences are somewhat evident - as the curator of the Timmel Collection commented, "If Alfred Hitchcock and Claude Monet had a child, it could be Little." Favorites include Claude Monet, Louise Joséphine Bourgeois, Paul Gauguin, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, HR Giger, and Salvador Dali. She is also a fan of Stephen King, William Castle, Hammer Films, Tim Burton, Alfred Hitchcock, and Zdzisław Beksiński.
Little is a member of Women in Music (WIM Los Angeles), Children's Book Writers of Los Angeles (CBW-LA), the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI), and the Friends of the Snite Museum at the University of Notre Dame.
She attended the Berklee College of Music, in Boston, MA, where she received her Bachelor's Degree in Professional Music. She plays both the piano and violin. After graduating from Berklee, Little moved to London, England, where she was a studio musician and music journalist. She loved London so much that she made it her home for several years. Her passion for photography really developed during this time. Little eventually moved back to the States, where she was the operations manager of a symphony orchestra, and then became the promotions director of an award-winning fine arts festival.
Little was born and raised in Indiana and has lived in London, England, Boston, MA, and now resides in California. She has a very strong passion for animals and their rights, and has had the good fortune to share her life with many lovely animal companions. In her free time, Little does pro bono photography for animal rights organizations. She is a foster mom to two elephants.
