Born and raised on the East Coast, Judy moved to Wisconsin as a teacher on the Menominee Reservation in the 60’s, a connection she continues to cherish.
She has been a 2008 regional artist in residency for the Neville Public Museum(Green Bay, WI), and has been a visiting artist for various schools and libraries in Northeastern Wisconsin since 1986.
Judy began her artistic exploration with pencil sketches and pen & ink drawings, including publishing an annual calendar and postcards, illustrating album covers and small chapbooks and creating original graphic works. Her current fascination is watercolors, collage and "plein" air painting.
Her murals are in the waiting room at the Stockbridge-Munsee Health Center, U.W. Plattvile, and Oconto Falls Elementary School.
Judy is an enthusiastic teacher at almost every level from 6 months to 94 years and truly enjoys getting her students excited about painting. Joyous activities exploring color and composition are presented in age and ability appropriate presentations.
