About the Artist:

Judith began painting in oils at 8 years of age and has been painting professionally for more than 35 years.  Her love and passion is for portraiture and figure. She was honored to have been selected to paint the official portrait of Colorado Governor Bill Ritter, Federal Judge Figa, as well as two large public art commissions for Adams County, Colorado.

Judith’s extensive body of work includes a series of paintings of African widows and orphans. She also paints western paintings depicting the character and strength of Native Americans and western people.

An artist and educator, Judith owns and teaches at the Art Academy of Colorado, a thriving art school for children and adults. Judith considers her love, passion, and ability to create and reproduce beauty to be a truly spiritual experience and a gift which she has been entrusted to use and to share with others.
