Sunnyshore Studio: Tell us about yourself?
Judy: I’ve been living on Camano Island, for about five years now, in the Country Club neighborhood. Prior to living in Washington State, there was Kansas, Texas, even Pennsylvania. Along the way, I’ve been active in Art clubs and Artist Associations, including the Kansas Watercolor Society, Wichita Women’s Artists, and the Camano Arts Association. I’ve shown my work in several galleries throughout the years, including the Top of the Line Gallery in Fort Worth, Buffalo Trails Gallery in Jackson Hole, and of course the Seagrass Gallery on Camano Island.
Sunnyshore Studio: How did you get started in art? Describe how you got started, what were influences and encouragements, turning points.
Judy: There has never been a time in my life without Art. My earliest memories are of drawing horses and other animals.
Sunnyshore Studio: What has been your journey as an artist? Tell us something about your journey as an artist. What have been some of the significant milestones, turning points, achievements.
Judy: My High School Art teacher was a great influence, helping me choose art as a career. I went on to get a degree in Art from the University of Arkansas and was thrilled to be accepted into the Top of the Line Gallery in Fort Worth, Texas within a year of graduating.
Sunnyshore Studio: What about your future as an artist? Where do you hope to go with your art? Where would you like to be in five years?
Judy: I hope to someday have my home studio on the Camano Arts Association Home Studio Tour.
Sunnyshore Studio: Why are you excited to participate in the 20th Annual 2018 Studio Tour at Sunnyshore Studio?
Judy: I was fortunate to have my work shown on previous tours at the Seagrass Gallery in Terry’s Corner. But, since their closing, I have been “Gallery-less in Seattle”. I can’t even begin to describe how thrilling it was to be invited as a guest artist at Sunnyshore Studio. The Mother’s Day Studio Tour is one of the best Art events in the world, and it’s a true honor to be showing and sharing my art here.
