Judy has always been intrigued by nature and it's inherent beauty, leading to an imaginative obsession with fog and mist. This is often reflected in her nature scenes and photographs. Favourite subjects are nature, wild animals, and people. Favourite mediums: Pen & Ink, Watercolour and Photography. She enjoys bringing her own sense of reality to a scene, whether imagined or photographed.
Judy’s inspirations are a collection of her experiences. Motivated by her Father, who always pushed her to see the possibilities, encouraged by new ideas, thoughts, with the creative application to enrich and re-invent her own style. Many artists have artistically enthused Judy over the years, specifically Canadian artists, past & present. (Namely - David McEown, Tom Thomson, Alex Colville, Robert Bateman and Lawren Harris. She first realized her passion, in Grade 7, when it became apparent that the art requirements were coming more naturally to her than many of her classmates. From then on, with her Father’s support and encouragement, she started experimenting with new mediums, subjects and ideas.
Continuing into secondary school, Judy focused her studies in the Art and Music programs. After high school, she studied all mediums but ultimately settling into Watercolours and Pen & Ink.
Judy has raised 2 children to the wonderful young adults they are today. They are her pride and joy. But now that they are busy with their own lives, Judy's time is devoted to a full time job but loves to relax with a work of art, reading a book or enjoying a very eclectic array of music, including classic rock, easy listening, jazz, anything that is creative. Nature walks with her camera often provides her inspiration.
