Judy is a native East Texan, and now resides in the beautiful and peaceful setting of Holly Lake Ranch, Texas. Growing up in the natural and colorful settings of East Texas is reflected in her colorful abstract oil landscapes. She began painting in her early 20’s while raising a family of three, taking every opportunity to study art through classes and workshops. Her studies have included private ateliers with master artists. Her work has been exhibited in many national and international exhibitions and one woman shows. Judy has won numerous awards for her paintings, and her work can be found in private and public collections throughout the United States.
I believe there is a strong human response to color and that it reflects and affects our moods. My painting begins with a broad wash of color and rhythms. I establish a strong design structure and color harmony. Each layer reveals more forms and shapes. The use of lines and textures add intrigue and interest to the surface. My intention is to keep the elements universal and invite the viewer to experience it on an emotional level as well as visually. Even when I make a choice to use a subject such as a still life, landscape or figure, the elements of form, line, color and texture are my focus. I love the delicacy, vigor and beauty in them apart from the subject. My style in expressionist to impressionist, with bold and vibrant colors.
My mediums include, but are not limited to, water-media, oil, and pastel.
"Whether I am painting a bold and abstract painting on paper or canvas, or painting a landscape or still life, or using the colors and texture of gemstones and wire, I find that art is a part of how we live. I hope that my art reflects how I see life....with great appreciation and gratitude!"
