The trees, the flowers, the people… and art is inexhaustible source of inspiration, indeed. I get inspired by Klimt for example, and recently I discovered the work of Petra Collins and Akif Hakhan Celebi, they are very interesting photographers.

Hello Wendy, when did you decide to become a model?
I didn’t decide to be a model. I had some friends, even a boyfriend once, who were photographs and they asked me to help them with some projects. It came like that. And it’s actually nice to be a model, doing something and find out what it gives then, pretty exciting stuff.

When you’re not modeling, what do you do ?
I try to do a lot of things, painting, writing, taking pictures on film, reading. I play some instruments of music also and I do love traveling.

Do you have any favorite models ?
I don’t know a lot of model’s names, but I can say of course Kate Moss, and for the new girls I really like the faces of Malaika Firth and Liu Wen. That’s all I remember!

Your wildest dreams?
I would love to travel the world and find the Elixir of Long Life to travel the world.

What influences your work?
Almost everything. The trees, the flowers, the people… and art is inexhaustible source of inspiration, indeed. I get inspired by Klimt for example, and recently I discovered the work of Petra Collins and Akif Hakhan Celebi, they are very interesting photographers.

Favorite sport?
Yoga, swimming and stretching, if I’m not so lazy.

Any exciting projects on the horizon ?
Not really for now! But patience is a virtue.

Is there anything else you think I need to know?
Yes, why not remind people to be tolerant, respectful to others and our earth. And to be!
