These paintings, either in oil or, if weather permits, pastel , enable Judy to absorb the scene in front of her in all it’s subtleties – colour , light and tone . This way of working can then stimulate a less representational but often more expressive approach in the studio where the mood and atmosphere of the scene become more important than true representation – generally this work involves mixed media – whether it be watercolour, inks, pastel, acrylic and collage – the tools used dependant on which combination is best suited to what is in her ‘ mind’s eye’.
Her style is both evolving and eclectic but if sent to a desert island with only one medium allowed her choice would be soft pastels.
Recently Judy has exhibited in both the Pastel Society and Society of Women Artists Exhibitions in the Mall Galleries in London.
Her work is in private collections both here and abroad.
