In 1995 he was named Master Pastelist, PSA and Distinguished Pastelist, Pastel Society of the West Coast. He is a member of PSA Board of Governors and IAPS Board of Directors.
Born in Michigan, Wakeham attended Meinzinger Art School, Detroit, and later earned degrees in painting from Michigan State University (1959) and Stanford University (1961). He taught drawing and painting at Stanford and art history and oil painting at College of San Mateo (CA). During the early 60s he traveled and painted in Europe for two years, living the second year in Florence, Italy.
He has conducted workshops, taught master classes, and juried exhibitions in California, Nevada, New Mexico, Hawaii, New York, Washington, D.C., and Ontario, Canada. At PSA he taught a landscape workshop in 1997 and did demonstrations in 2001, 2004, and 2005, and has assisted in hanging "Pastels Only" each year since 1998. He is on the Editorial Advisory Board of The Pastel Journal.

He was revision author of the 3rd, 4th, and 5th editions and co-author of the 6th and 7th editions of Mendelowitz's Guide to Drawing (1982-2007).
Wakeham exhibited at Ankrum Gallery, Los Angeles (1974-1988); Gallery 30, San Mateo/Burlingame (1985-1995); and was represented by Hackett-Freedman Gallery, San Francisco (1995-2005). He has had 27 solo exhibitions. In addition to his landscape work in both pastels and oils, he maintains a weekly schedule of drawing and painting the figure.
