My Bio

One part gypsy and two parts visual alchemist, Judy believes that all the places she has lived have in many ways taken up residence in her and manifest in the diversity of her work. Exploring themes drawn from folklore, history and nature, she enjoys working in a variety of media. Often blending quilting skills with techniques drawn from her graphic arts background, she uses textile paints, dyes, inks, acrylic powders, artist’s pencils and occasionally stitches metal onto her fabric. This creative restlessness perfectly mirrors her life experience.
