In this exhibit Judy has explored the many ways to work with silk, including silk scarves,
nuno-felted scarves, eco printing on silk, collaging with silk, quilting with silk and a variety
of techniques in the wall paintings. She says “From the first time I watched dye flowing
from my brush onto silk, I was captivated by this medium.” Working with dyes and silk
brings wonderful surprises, as she explores the intense colors of the dyes and the
sensuous quality of the silk. Her lifelong passion for color and and her feelings for the
natural world continues to inform her work. Painting plein air has deepened
the connection she feels toward landscape, light, shadows, air, and desert plants.
