Meet Artist Judy Sullivan

We are thrilled to have Camano artist Judy Sullivan in Sunnyshore Studio’s upcoming Christmas on Camano art show. You will absolutely love her paintings of nature and wildlife!

Here’s a short bio.


I grew up in the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas. I loved nothing better than roaming through the woods looking for signs of the animals living there. After receiving my Bachelor’s degree in Art from the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville, I married my best friend and moved around the country with him. We eventually found our way to the Seattle area and have lived on Camano Island since 2013. I never take for granted the sights and sounds of the Pacific Northwest. I love the smell of the sea and the calls of eagles and seagulls. I try to depict these experiences in my paintings of wildlife and nature.

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.
