Judy is drawn to the idea that nothing is permanent, that everything is in a transient state and that there is beauty in imperfection.
She is inspired by marks evidencing the passing of time in the aging urban environment and the changing seasons, such as aging walls, fallen leaves, and loves the surfaces and textures which seem to hold that sense of history and mystery.
Her work echoes this process of change as she works in layers which conceal and reveal what went before. She uses paint, gesso and machine stitch to create surfaces which constantly change incorporating unexpected and accidental events.
She trained in Textiles and Painting at Canterbury College of Art and works on small and large scale.
