The inspiration for this coloring book "is simply, that I adore Charleston." A South Carolina native, Judy has painted the Carolinas landscapes and gardens, completed numerous commissions; also exhibited in many juried shows winning ribbons and awards. Many years spent working as a commercial artist for major companies and a graduate of Washington School of Art has given a rounded art education. In her painting, the primary media used are oils and acrylics, painted with a palette knife and brushes. Judy also has Limited Edition Giclee prints on paper and canvas and recently has added mugs and tiles featuring her artwork. Her work may be found in many galleries as well as online at her website. "Reality oftentimes is gloomy; my passion is to pursue happiness and share that with others. Not just to be happy, but to be toe-tapping "giggly-happy"! ...smile it becomes you.
