|Biography||Born NS, raised in Ontario: "My mom would save every scrap of paper for me so I could draw".
60's: a new world "looking thru the lens", a trip to beautiful British Columbia and a "real" job at a long-established Studio/Gallery, Fort William (photo-colouring/framing/oil painting local scenes).
70's: Life's journey led westward.. Art Instruction Schools, trained as architectural draughtsman.
80's: Oilsands Ore Reserve Program (sections/maps/isopachs). Selling&servicing the TI-99/4A home computer, after buying one for her son ... speech/music capabilities far ahead of its time.
'99: after 10 lost years (MVA/xrays), Judy resumed w camera & music and researched the bio- effects of x-rays. Vancouver Island, her cousin + watercolour classes inspired her to paint again.
00's "Back home" she is looking for an old country church -a gallery/venue for local talent (art/music)- to come full circle as it were. "In the 60's, my father's friend had inspired me with a gift of Conte pastels."

The ultimate hero would be Jesus† ... imagine what life would be like if we all tried to follow his basic philosophy.
