Judith lives and works from her studio-home in Laguna Beach, California. Judith has also been a Sawdust artist since 2014, creating one of a kind Wildlife Illuminated Manuscript, Illuminated Letters, and Calligraphy artwork.
Judith says "I grew up in Denver, Colorado; however, my educational and art foundational background was formed in illustration and textile design in New York City. My work centers on nature’s endangered or threatened species including flora and fauna found on the coasts and waterways of our great planet.
Materials and inspiration for my work come from the richly based historical time of the Medieval to Early Renaissance Period lasting from the 13th to 15th century. Authentic egg tempera paints, gold leaf, parchment paper, calligraphy, 24 karat gold lettering used by artists of that period are incorporated into my wildlife illuminations artwork. My work wildlife illuminations have been showcased at the Laguna Beach California Summer Sawdust Arts Festival and the Sawdust Winter Festival. Many of my favorite pieces are showcased exclusively at ESTArtDecor.com and are available as accent pillows, art panels, and drink coasters."
