Profile: Judy Ross

From a very early age, Judy has always felt the desire to create in various different mediums of expression, be it by creative writing, sewing, photography or painting. Although primarily self-taught, Judy has also received fine art instruction from local accomplished artists in watercolour, oil and primarily, acrylic medium. She enjoys taking part in workshops whenever possible, most notably with well-known American collage artist, Carrie Burns Brown, as well as from talented Canadian acrylic artists/authors, Peter John Reid and Rhéni Tauchid.

“Over 25 years’ experience as a photographer, has been of great value to me with painting, in particular regarding composition and 'the art of seeing'. For the most part, I enjoy vivid colour, painting a variety of subject matter on varied surfaces, as well as incorporating texture into my work through the experimental use of mediums. This allows me to visually feel the image as I see it; eyes and heart meeting so to speak. My photographs are primarily landscape and convey mood with the effective use of lighting, composition, and subject matter. My landscape, cityscape and abstract paintings express more of my complex nature and the love of experimentation. This is no more evident than in my current series of dimensional “Wheat” paintings done in memory of my Father.

Judy resides in St.Thomas, Ontario and is an active member of the St Thomas-Elgin Artists' Guild, Port Stanley Artists' Guild , St. Thomas Photographic Guild, Lambeth Art Association and The Uptown Arts Club, London.

Judy is a member artist with the Art Emporium, Port Stanley and Art Gallery 687, St.Thomas, ON. Her art may also be seen at various locations throughout Elgin and Middlesex Counties, in part, at The Economic Development and Tourism Office, St.Thomas/Rubyeyes Kraftwerks, Port Stanley/Art with Panache Gallery (Uptown Arts Club area), London, and Shelley’s Unique Accent Furniture, London.
