Acrylic |  Colored Pencil  |  PleinAir

Studio #91

Judith Surowiec grew up and married in Buffalo, NY. Inspired by her artist mother and the work of Charles Burchfield, she studied art at SUNY and graduated with a degree in Art Education. Judith and her family moved from state to state affording her the opportunity to meet new artists and become involved with the arts of each community. During one move to Atlanta (there were four), she began studying with Joseph Perrin. Her work made a dramatic change. Now, working with acrylics and colored pencil, she paints with a colorful energy. Sometimes she folds or crumples a canvas for the challenge and surprise. This process adds a unique "signature" to her paintings. 
Judy's work can be found in many private and corporate collections throughout the US, Europe, and Canada.
