In Judy’s own words:
My passion is to translate into a visual language, those moments and visual delights that have forced me to stop, observe and connect. It’s the effect of light and atmosphere on a subject that inspires me. A lifelong love of nature’s beauty, traveling and color provide me endless inspiration.
I have worked in Oil, Charcoal & Pencil and sculpture but Pastel Painting is my primary focus. Pastel is pure pigment in dry form and I love the feel, versatility and immediacy of this beautiful medium. I have exhibited in many group shows and had my first solo exhibition at the historic Railway Exhchange Building (formerly Santa Fe bldg.) on Michigan Avenue directly across from the Art Institue of Chicago. My work is hanging in that building and in private collections across the United States. My studies have included study with Master Pastelists Sally Strand and Richard McKinley, Dawn Emerson, Margaret Dyer and Ilene Gienger and ongoing study with Kathleen Newman in Old Town. Assoc.
