Featured artist Judy Waters appeared on Colour In Your Life Season Ten (10). Read a little bit about the artist here and support our site by joining and watching the episode below.
Judy Waters started her career as a hairdresser and was always inspired by colour and shape. It seemed only natural for Judy to follow that path into her artistic endeavour. Judy’s first passion was watercolour, which was greatly influenced as she grew up on the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria and was surrounded by the beauty of that coastal region. You can see many of her paintings have a nautical theme. Watercolour as a medium was very successful for Judy, most of which have been sold through galleries, exhibitions and art shows. After approximately 10 years Judy turned her focus to large scale acrylics. Judy felt restricted by the size of a sheet of watercolour paper.
Asked to teach contemporary acrylics and resin art at Blanc Canvas Studios in Hampton in 2010, Judy Waters has been teaching there ever since. She loves to experiment with every medium she can get her hands on. Judy is very enthusiastic and open to learning any and all techniques, which may push the boundaries of contemporary art. Passionate about encouraging anyone, whether they be an artist or not, Judy says to ‘have a go, it’s only colour on a board, it can’t hurt you and will only make you feel better about yourself.‘
Judy loves resin; it has a freedom of movement and vibrancy of colour that can be combined to create a beautiful art piece that is only restricted by your imagination.
Given the opportunity to buy Hampton Art Supplies, a small art shop, Judy has been working there for several years. In the shop, which is staffed by like-minded artists, the team encourages customers to try firsthand how each product can be used. Judy encourages their artists to extend themselves and not to be afraid to try something new. Judy has a passion for art in all its forms, believing art is something that can take you on a wonderful journey.
