Artist's Biography

     Judith was born in Worcester, Massachusetts and has resided for most of the past 30 years in the scenic Blackstone Valley area of Central Massachusetts, where she works in her home studio.  Putting aside an early interest in art, Judith earned a B.S. degree and a Masterís degree in Business Administration.  After 23 years of working totally in her left brain as a business systems analyst, she felt driven to renew and explore her more creative side.  Nine years ago she accepted an early retirement and began taking painting classes and workshops largely focusing on the landscape in oil, acrylic, and watercolor.  From her very first show, Judith began winning awards, starting with the Hopedale Arts Council purchase prize award in 1997, followed in later years by awards for oil painting and portraiture.   

     More recently, she earned a certificate in Natural Science at Rhode Island School of Design, and has taught Drawing Nature with Colored Pencils there.  In keeping with a long-time passion for gardening and plants, her art and illustration now focus primarily on botanical subjects in acrylic, colored pencil, or watercolor.

      Judith holds memberships in the American Society of Botanical Artists (ASBA), the New England Chapter of ASBA, and the National, and New England Guilds of Natural Science Illustrators.
