Started painting at Syndal Technical College, Melbourne in 1970 for a period of 4 years and then studied colour and design with Alfred Calkoen.

Commenced at Alan Martin’s School of painting in 1972. Studied for many years the Max Meldrum’s method of sciences of appearances, which has taught me to paint from life and study tone.

I have taught painting at Sherbrook Art Society and my own classes at Burwood, Victoria.

Moved to Sydney in 1982 and built a studio at Nelson ran classes for 4 years and workshops in this area.

Moved to Sackville North to follow a dream to build a mud brick house and studio with husband Neil that we achieved during 1986 – 1990.

Winning the Camberwell’s Rotary Study Grant allowed Judy to study for 3 months in Europe covering Turkey, Switzerland, France, England, Belgium and Holland.

I had several one-person exhibitions and many mixed exhibitions in both Melbourne and Sydney.

Taught painting at H.C.A.W situated at the University of Western Sydney, Hawkesbury for 20 years and still have a strong interest in this activity.

Have travelled extensively throughout the world and always marveled at the wonders of nature everywhere I visit.

During my career I have won over 60 awards in most mediums.
