Judith works in a variety of media, including watercolours, acrylics, coloured pencils and printmaking. She often finds this encourages creativity, with one medium feeding off the other, or combining as mixed media pieces that she might even embellish with hand stitching, too. She favours coloured pencil for its versatility as a medium, for expressive sketchbook studies on the go, or by contrast, the depth achieved by building up painstaking layers of translucent colour for finished pieces.
Women feature regularly in her depictions of everyday life and imaginary places. Having previously lived abroad, notably in Chile for ten years, her work sometimes tackles deeper themes, such as belonging, acceptance and loss. She turned professional in 2012, exhibits regularly in several galleries in Northern Ireland, and has sold work to private collectors worldwide. To date, she has also exhibited in The Sunday Times Watercolour Competition and the Society of Women Artists, both in London's prestigious Mall Galleries, three times in the Royal Watercolour Society's Contemporary Watercolour Competition, and the Royal Ulster Academy’s 2014 and 2018 exhibitions in Belfast, for which she was also shortlisted in 2015 and 2016. She became a member of the Ulster Society of Women Artists in March 2016, winning the New Member Lily Davies Award, and is currently President of the society.
Judith is a Silver status member of the UKCPS, having had work accepted in their exhibitions for five years running since she joined. A wide range of contemporaries and past masters inspire the artist, as well as her love of pattern, vintage and retro, and being a nature lover since childhood, animals and birds feature regularly too.
