Judy follows her own wondrous path from one concept to the next using paint as her narrative account. Her painting focus drifts from interpreting words and letters, giving them meaning, building a story, to beholding the natural world,featuring plants, planets, landscapes and abstracts. Often her work is layered in both subjects and in paint. The first layer of paint sets the tone. It maybe a word or an idea and then Judy builds the painting layer upon layer to be an object or an abstract. The final painting is built of these layers of thoughts and paint and often results in a simple elegant form. Her series of paintings are sensitive studies of an idea, forming a language that becomes familiar allowing these paintings to become vocabulary of our time.
Judy is a Golden Paints Certified Working Artist. Golden is an
