Judith considers her love, passion and ability to create and reproduce beauty to be a truly spiritual experience. She is thankful that God has entrusted this gift to her to use and to share with others. Judith began painting in oils at 8 years of age under the tutelage of an artist who observed her talent and offered to teach her. She has been fortunate to continue her art education through the years working under some top artists, most recently Craig Tennant, Anthony Ryder and Michael Shane Neal. Judith has been featured in Southwest Art Magazine, Art Collector Magazine, and Art of the West Magazine.
Portrayal of light in the depiction of the beauty of my world is my main goal to accomplish. I believe my responsibility as an artist is to “talk” about the particular world in which I live. My greatest love is to show the character, the story, and the beauty of the people who surround me. Since I now live in the west, I try to bring emotion and character to my paintings of Native Americans and the people of the west. Also, because we work in Africa, I feel compelled to honor these beautiful and courageous people, and to tell their stories by painting them. Lastly, I want to take commissioned portraiture to the level of going beyond mere “likeness” to capture the heart and personality of the subject.
