Note: Judith was born in 1962 in Australia, and trained in Glasgow, where she now lives and works. Her bold, exuberant and vibrantly joyful landscapes have led to sell-out shows in Scotland, London and the rest of the UK as well as exhibiting further afield in America, Russia and Sweden. Working in oils, her paintings use bold, vigorous, rhythmical strokes of impasto paint combined with delicate brushwork. This gives an exciting texture to the paint surface along with a sense of abstraction, which reflects nature’s contrasts and delicate harmonies. However, whilst the work is very painterly, it also has a strong sense of place. Winner of the 1999 MacRoberts Open Prize, the 2010 House for An Art Lover Award, and the Glasgow Art Club Award in 2016, Judith is also a member of the Paisley Art Institute, and a regular exhibitor at the Royal Glasgow Institute and Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolour. Paintings in private collections in England, Ireland, France, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands, Turkey, Mexico, Canada, USA, Bermuda, Australia, Hong Kong and the United Arab Emirates. Collections include: Sophos Plc Global Headquarters, Arisaig Partners, The Royal Bank of Scotland World Headquarters, University of Strathclyde, Glasgow Caledonian University, British Midland (on permanent exhibition in the Executive Lounge at Glasgow International Airport). Work also owned as part of the Helen Cargill Thomson Collection, gifted to the University of Strathclyde. Judith's highly successful 14th Feb - 10th March 2020 exhibition at Duncan R. Miller Fine Arts (London) was her fourteenth solo show at this prestigious London gallery.
