    Hi everyone! My name is Wendy and I am the owner here at BAD GIRLS COUTURE! I am excited to be taking this journey again. I was in business before as BAD GIRLS back in 2007-2012 and had a BLAST. I took a sabbatical to tend to my children and family. My children are all grown and gone now so I have lots of time to devote again to my passion and I am ecstatic!

    I have been an artist all my life starting as a small child. I am proficient in all paint mediums…I studied in this order…acrylic, oil and watercolor. My favorite was always acrylic and least favorite oil. But lately I have been favoring watercolor. It is the least forgiving and most challenging in my opinion and maybe that’s why I am loving it. I LOVE a challenge. I also work with all mediums as far as gels and pastes and all techniques. And I love to teach. but…you MUST know this about me..I am very far from typical….typical bores me!!! I purposely try to create out of the box and I constantly try my best to challenge myself. I will work with colors that are not my favorite to push myself out of the box. And please know i will do the same for you. Why? Because this is how the best artists are born. Trust me with this one. please. I just ask for your confidence and I promise I will help you to achieve your ultimate potential. Rome wasn’t built in a day. And neither is an artist. You are ever evolving. I am still learning. And my opinion is that the day you think you know it all is the day you stop growing.

    You will continually hear me say…NO RULES! NO FEAR! JUST HAVE FUN! Because that is what it’s all about. That my BAD GIRLS is the secret to your success. Who made the rules anyway? Who said it HAS to be like this? or that? Or you have to use this brush or that technique. Who made those rules is someone just like me and you….and guess what??? I toss them everyday…LOL…I make my own rules. I do what is comfortable to me!!! Because what is comfortable to whoever made that rule was comfortable with that technique….and who says EVERYONE is???? WRONG! NOT HAVING IT….NOT HERE!!! I am going to teach you to embrace your own style and to create your own rules. You WILL learn to love your own ARTIST SELF…and just watch what happens….YOU FLOURISH…because no longer are trying to fit into a mold. When you combine all of BAD GIRLS philosophies you will be a HAPPY ARTIST. So when you see our kits and our projects and that nasty inner critic starts whispering in your ear what he always says…”YOU CANT DO THAT”….you know what??? SHUT HIM DOWN!!! Know that I promise you that you will be able to create it…just HAVE FAITH. STAY WITH ME. STAY BAD!!!

    Ok…so now that you know that about me…I am a native Southern Californian…have been here all my life. I am married to my soulmate Kenny. I love the color pink….ask my husband…he says our house is Barbie’s Dream House…LOL…I love to garden when I have time. I love shopping (what BAD GIRL doesn’t???) and I am addicted to art supplies…especially paints, pastels, and mediums. I have learned over the years to NOT hoard my supplies and I embrace using everything. I love to try new techniques and I swear I will recycle ANYTHING! OH YA…I LOVE chocolate!!! help me please!!! LOL. I have 3 children….2 girls and 1 boy. I love them more than anything…they are truly my life…I always say if anyone asked me what my greatest accomplishment in life is it would be raising my 3 children to be responsible and respectable adults…I know all you mommas will agree!

    I graduated from college with a degree in Interior Design and owned my own company for many years and all along since childhood I created art. I decided during my time as an Interior Designer that I wanted to pursue my passion as an artist and own an art company…so I closed my Interior Design company and took the plunge with BAD GIRLS in 2007. I loved it and have missed it with all my heart and soul so here I am again. YAYYYYY!!!!

    Thank you from the bottom of my heart for joining me again if you were my customer back then and if you are a new customer know that I will give you the very best I have to offer. It’s going to be an AMAZING JOURNEY MY BAD GIRLS…LET’S HAVE FUN!!!!

    So excited to have Bad Girls back and creating again!! Congrats Wendy on an amazing site! I would expect nothing less from you!!

    I’m Laura and I go back a while with kits. Wendy brings some amazingly fun, arty things to the table. I cannot wait to create with this new kit. I lived in California forever and just recently moved to the Cleveland, OH. I do NOT root for the Cavaliers since I am a Bay Area girl and will always root for my Golden State Warriors!! I work a lot but need to make time for my creative side again. My hubby and I have our pup Gibbs that we spoil on our little farm.

    Can’t wait to meet everyone!

    Hi, everyone! I’m Rae. I live in Las Vegas with my husband and kids, ages 14, 12, and 6. Scrapbooking is my favorite thing to do. 🙂 And I also love to read. It seems so long ago now, but once upon a time I was a high school English teacher- definitely my dream job, but I had to switch gears in my career, and now I’m fortunate enough to work from home (full time) in the pharmaceutical sciences industry. I’m so excited to be a part of the Bad Girls Couture design team, and I’m looking forward to getting to know everyone on the forums!
