Wendy Ricardo is a self taught photographer based on the Gold Coast, Australia.

In 2002 she and her husband Mario went to Timor-Leste to establish the East Timor Childrens Fund and that's where her passion began. In July 2011 her first official exhibition was held in Timor-Leste to showcase her amazing prints of this beautiful country. The exhibition ran for two weeks at the Casa Europa in Dili and was very successful.

Wendy also covers a wide range of subjects from landscapes and seascapes, to flora and fauna and has won awards for some of her work in Australia.
