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.  Judy teaches classes and workshops in creative design and composition.

Artist Statement
Finding Art in Life and Life in Art

My style is expressionist to impressionist with bold and vibrant colors. My mediums include but are not limited to pastel, water-media and oil. I believe there is a strong human response to color and it reflects and affects our moods.  My intention is to keep the elements universal and invite the viewer to experience it on an emotional level as well as visually.  The elements of form, line, color and texture are my focus, whether the subject is a still life, landscape or figure. I love the delicacy, vigor and beauty in them apart from the subject.

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!"
