Judy grew up in a small town on the south shore of Massachusetts. “One of my earliest memories is of walking in the woods with my grandfather where he gave me a love and appreciation of the natural world that has never diminished.” After raising her family she lived in Boston’s South End and became a student at the Kaji Aso Art Studio. Wanting to leave the city behind she and her husband moved to New Hampshire where she became a student of Mia Mead and Evelien Bachrach Seeger. For the past several years she has been painting with the Lone Mountain Artists group at the Harris Center For Conservation Education.
Judy is drawn to the medium of watercolor because of the ‘suspenseful’ process and visceral experience of putting brush, loaded with fluid color, to paper. Lately she has been exploring pencil as well as pen and ink.
