Judy's contemporary abstract paintings burst with a rainbow of color and design. She loves to use intense bold pigments in her exploration of how colors blend and layer. Judy is intrigued by pouring fluid acrylic paint, onto the canvas and by tilting it, influencing the interweaving of colors, creating abstract organic shapes. You are invited to discover what each contemporary piece reveals to you. Judy has recently switched from realism to a more abstract approach. She is currently using a modern technique, which resembles shimmering “stained glass” on canvas using several layers of transparent acrylic paint and special acrylic mediums.
Judy uses archival high quality, permanent and light-fast Golden and Liquitex acrylic paint and mediums. She focuses her painting time on work she is most passionate about and is true to her spirit.
She has revealed talent as a teenager, by her drawings of animals and oil paintings of horses. Judy is primarily self taught and studies art and visits galleries. She has also participated in acrylic painting workshops by Andrea Warren in Ottawa, and on PEI, with Yvonne Soper, Henry Purdy, Linda Shaw-Packard, Ann Gallant, and Mary R.M. Robertson.
She is an Islander who grew up on a farm in western PEI, which has attributed to her love of horses and nature. Judy resides in Stratford with her husband Glenn, and their dog, Freddy and works in Charlottetown, where she continues to live artfully.
Judy is a juried member of the Artisans on Main Gallery in Montague. She has also exhibited at many art shows, 146 Art Gallery and Howe's Hall Backroom Gallery. You can check out her website at JudyPerryArt.ca and ArtisansOnMain.ca (in Montague from June – September).
