No, you may not deduct any of those expenses, on your tax return, because they were not expenses related to the production of your taxable income.

You wife may still deduct the expenses on her return (schedule C), under the theory that you paying the expenses amount to a gift to her. So, it was, for tax purposes,  her money that paid the expenses.

Are you filing a Joint return?  She can probably put the expenses down on her schedule C for self employment.
