Judy received a BA and MA degree from Eastern Michigan University and for 38 years did her dream job of teaching art to public school children. Retirement offered her the time to explore painting on a more regular basis. Using both oil and acrylics, Judy captures her love of Nature while using bold colors to express her feeling.
The opportunity to teach is always appealing, so Judy is working at North Central College in Naperville. She teaches Art Teaching Methods to aspiring art students. As well as painting lessons to retired teachers.
Judy’s paintings are displayed locally. A long time member of the DuPage Art League, Judy has had several Purchase Awards. She is particularly proud of the Illinois Teacher Association’s purchase her painting, Night Iris which commemorates the death of a fellow teacher.
