About The Artist:
Judy was born and raised in Manitoba, Canada. In one of the many moves she has made since marriage to husband Bill, she found just what she had been searching for. Two potters were teaching classes and after a couple of sessions of “pottery 101” she was hooked. Since then she has been learning from various workshops, books, as well as others in various artistic fields. Until 2004 this was not a full time occupation, but since she moved her studio to Tannery Row Artist Colony she has been working and “studying” in the rich environment that a group of artists provide.
“I’m making and selling pottery from my studio and enjoying the creativity that some jobs don’t allow! I have the association of many other types of artists and learning from them and becoming inspired by them makes this a very rewarding artistic endeavour. My work is largely functional but raku firing gives texture and excitement to the non- functional pieces I create.”
The greatest variety of Judy’s work can be found in her studio at Tannery Row Artist Colony. Her work is also featured in the Spruill Gallery in Atlanta, GA.
