In August, 2019, Judy begun painting with oils... again. It was overnight. A paint night at the Caribbean Centre in Windsor turned into her love for painting on canvas! Since this time, she has produced over 75 paintings. They are landscapes and show the places she lived and travelled, along with the places her late brother travelled to. The landscapes she produces are realistic images painted with oils or acrylics on canvas. A fast painter, with most of the paintings finished in 20 minutes, Judy uses different tools for her creations. One is very important, used by her late uncle, who was a home builder. Her love for painting as an art form producing works for everyone to enjoy is visible in her pieces.
Monet is a favourite artist, and Judy is highly inspired by his artwork. Renoir, Van Gogh and Rembrandt influenced her, as well as, the Canadian Group of Seven. She is a Member of the Walkerville Artists’ Co-op Gallery where her works are on display.
Judy paints natural landscapes and events of the Earth. These depictions are represented in image form from her paintings. They take place in Canada, the United States of America, and Europe.
