Born in 1962 in Australia but trained, living and working in Scotland, Judith’s bold, expressive landscapes have led to sell-out shows in Scotland, London and the rest of the UK, as well as exhibitions further afield in Ireland, America, Russia and Sweden.
Winner of the 1999 MacRoberts Open Prize and the coveted 2009 ‘House for an Art Lover’ prize at the Royal Glasgow Institute. A regular exhibitor and member of the Paisley Art Institute, RGI and RSW, Judith’s work can be found in the collections of The Royal Bank of Scotland, The University of Strathclyde, Glasgow Caledonian University, and privately worldwide.
Landscape is not just about the land; it is about the experience of a very particular moment, and the scenes I paint are all very precise, particular places that I have been to. They are records of a particular moment which is now gone, but they also of speak of a cumulative experience, as I often return to places again and again. Observation and truthfulness is paramount, but combined with expressive brushwork and use of colour. So the landscape is also an expression of me, a form of self-portrait – an emotional landscape.
