“I love the outdoors, my paintings are inspired by my backpacking experiences in the Sierras, vacations around the world, historical sites, majestic landscapes, flowers, my grandchildren, and in fact almost everything around me.  I never know what will catch my eye and inspire me to paint.  I love to learn new techniques and processes, so I paint constantly.  It is my passion.”

Judy’s art work is on display at the Sutter Creek Gallery, 35 Main St. Sutter Creek
