Judge was born and raised in the Midwest and now lives in Arizona. Her art is influenced by two different beauties in nature—water and the desert. According to the artist, she is inspired to tell a story by the patterns and the textures as well as the colors found in nature. One may find the references to be literal, tactile, and obvious, while others are transparent, symbolic and abstract. She creates to evoke imagination and to give pleasure to the senses.
“Some say that the way in which you discover and pursue your destination is sometimes more valuable than the splendors it offers once you arrive. My art provides cross-sections of my journeys and is a reflection of my experiences.”
