Women, flowers, and nature - the seemingly unrelated objects of my attention for more than twenty-eight years of painting professionally. The seamless flow of one beautiful thing into another in a continuum that makes perfect sense to me.
Woman as ethereal goddess, flowers as iconic subjects, and paintings of insects and animals that have come from my direct experience of the natural world - painted as if through a lens of dreams.
My life has always been about the visual. Quiet observation taught me what I needed to know about rendering my subjects as I understood them. That sense has only grown stronger over the years as I explore my inner reality and the workings of my imagination, combined with life experience.
Fluid washes, and intense coloration with a surrealist feel are the hallmarks of my work. Abstractions of these subjects tell allegorical tales, and chart my path as an artist and a woman. My passion for life is revealed in every brush stroke.
Judith has been muraling for more than 29 years in private residences and public spaces. She has served as the Membership Chair for the Orlando Chapter of The Women's Caucus for Art, worked on the committee to organize the Winter Park Autumn Art Festival, and has planned, organized and hung countless juried shows. In addition, she spent one year as an Artist in Residence at an elementary school where she painted murals with more than 200 PK - 5th grade students.
Judith has developed and hosted wildly popular painting workshops for law enforcement professionals, hospital care-givers, and mental health professionals, and she has created numerous programs to serve at-risk teens.
In 2003 Judith painted a large mural at The National Zoo, and a mural at Patty Summers' Re-Awakening Centre in Virginia. In 2008 Princess Cruise Line produced a series of signed, limited edition prints that are now offered for sale on their ships. She will continue her work as a muralist and painter in the DC area, and will consider both mural and painting commissions.
