“Creativity is not a talent. It is a way of operating.” – John Cleese
Keep your tidy gardens and gently rolling fields – mixed media artist JudyBlue Anderson likes her landscapes rugged. Challenging. Off the beaten track. Think rocky shorelines and eroding cliffs and waterlogged swamps.
Armed with sketches produced en plein air, JudyBlue heads back to her studio in Hamilton and, using acrylic paint, ink and scraps of paper, channels her observations into vibrant, energetic pieces that immerse the viewer into the wildness of the scene. Bug spray not required.
JudyBlue has exhibited in countless solo and group shows and her work can be found in many private and corporate collections. We are delighted to welcome JudyBlue to the Herringbone family!
“Like art, revolutions come from combining what exists into what has never existed before.” – Gloria Steinem
Barbara Chapman may now be surrounded by the bright lights and big cities of southern Ontario, but her artistic heart remains on the east coast of Canada where she was born.
Barbara uses a soft, natural palette and sensitive brushwork to render the kinds of expansive views that speak to us all, regardless of our address.
Having studied art and art history at Sheridan College and the University of Toronto, Barbara now teaches painting to others as her “ongoing journey” in art continues. Barbara’s award-winning work features in many private and corporate collections and we are delighted to welcome her to the Herringbone family!
