The sounds of birds, the hum of bees, howling coyotes and the wind whizzing through the birches and poplars were the soundtrack of Wendy's prairie adventures. In high school she mutated into a Gothic girl and The Sisters Of Mercy, The Velvet Underground, Siouxie and the Banshees, The Cure, Blondie, but also historical rock and underground bands were the background music for a girl who was interested in photography, Interested in poetry and contemporary dance. During her dance training, Wendy got to know avant-garde composers and performance artists, jazz and musicals.
