JUDIDESIGN : BIOGRAPHY
I’ve been painting since I was seven and I recall my mother once asking what my art was meant to be to which my father replied that it didn’t matter about meaning provided I’d enjoyed the journey and that interpretation was in the eye of the beholder.
After school, I initially worked at the Dolcis Shoe company’s studio designing shop window displays, then went on a tour with a ballet company in the costume department, followed by work at several theatres, BBC and Thames TV.
My original love for fine art developed into creating abstract patterns using acrylics on wooden panels and several years ago, one of these was selected for a Summer Exhibition at The Tate Gallery. Another of my loves involves interpreting classic paintings and injecting some of my own emotions and style to compliment the artist’s theme.
Recently, I acquired some ostrich eggs and applied some of my unique designs onto the outer surface using acrylics and have also written articles for a variety of magazines accompanied by my own photography and used the material for lectures at meetings and at art exhibitions.
I'm also involved in photography which has led to an indulgence in the beautiful colours and patterns naturally inherent in flowers and trees. Indeed colours and textures inspired my creating collages, using paper cuttings as the medium on top of canvas, or paper backgrounds.
I’ve held solo exhibitions of my work and am a member of two art societies, each of whom exhibits once a year. Please take a look at some of my work and let me know if you’d like to acquire any of those on display, or perhaps suggest a commission you might like me to work on for you personally.
