Artist Judy Figgins' Artwork Now On Display at Galaxy Gallery
What a Treat to have the works of Judy Figgins added to the Galaxy Gallery! We are very glad that Judy was able to return to her artwork and that she now has a body of work large enough to share with the Public. She adds so much character and detail to her images that they almost become photographic. Her mediums of choice help bring out of her the essence of her image subjects.
Be sure to stop into the Gallery and experience Judy’s Fine Art display.
Here is Judy’s Bio in her own words.
I am a self-taught artist and have been drawing for as long as I can remember. Growing up on a ranch in southeastern Colorado, I developed a love for horses (and animals in general) early on and they became the subjects of many of my drawings. After high school I put my art aside (for the most part) for around 20 years. In the early part of 2017 I started up again just doing a few graphite drawings. With the help of instructional videos as well as art pages on social media, I decided to try color pencil. Soon after I started color pencil drawings a friend of mine asked if I would draw a memorial portrait of their dog. That was the start of doing pet portraits. I began seeing several pastel drawings online and that led to a curiosity about the medium so I gave it a try.... I was hooked. Pastel has become my favorite medium to work with.
Currently I work with graphite, charcoal and pastel. Learning different techniques in different mediums has really fueled my passion for drawing. I have completed numerous pet portraits and have won awards in local art shows. I am thankful that God has blessed me with the privilege of being a stay at home mom and being able to homeschool our daughters. I'm also thankful to Him for the talent He has blessed me with as well as the time and resources to work on improving my skills.
