Judy started painting late in life thinking if Grandma Moses could, so could
she. At the young age of 60, she took up painting for fun and fell in love with
watercolors. Most of her work is in watercolor but every once and a while, an
acrylic is thrown in for good measure, she's come to see the world
in different shapes and colors and has enjoyed painting both realistic and
abstract offerings on paper. Judy is basically self taught but has been very
fortunate to have many artistic friends and teachers in both AZ and MN, and WI where she spends her summers. She is forever learning and has not really settled on any one "style". Maybe that IS her style...you know "the jack of all trades"!!!!!
As Sharon states, she is "Expanding the visual borders of imagination to create paintings that will bring joy in peoples lives. The interrelationship of texture and color and how they influence each viewer is intriguing."
