Born in the Okanagan Valley, and now living in Chase, Judy has always been inspired by the hot dry sagebrush and pine country of the interior of BC.

Except for taking one year of commercial art at SAIT in Calgary, Judy is mostly self-taught, having developed her distinctive textural style of painting after taking a workshop with David Langevin of Kamloops.

Judy belongs to the Shuswap Festival of the Arts, the Kamloops Community Arts Council, and the Federation of Canadian Artists, where she has earned her active status.
