Judy Nelson


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"!!!!!
