Judith Part Time Professional Self Taught


As a child Judith was always drawing and excelled in art at school. With an art A-level under her belt, she considered applying for art school but instead opted to study languages, which led to a career in translation. Now, 30 years down the line, she divides her work time between translation and art. Although largely self-taught, she has perfected her skills in watercolour painting with various teachers. For ten years Judith lived in southern France where she developed a passion for sketching in the villages and countryside of the Languedoc. In 2014 she returned to her native north-west England where she is inspired by the rugged moorland landscapes, mills and weaver’s cottages of Saddleworth, contrasted with the architecture and urban environment of Greater Manchester. The strength of her paintings lies in three elements: strong composition, a harmonious palette and a sense of depth and mood conveyed through the way she captures the light. Subjects range from rural landscapes, houses, gardens and village scenes to city streets and industrial buildings. In the past five years, Judith has received a number of commissions for house portraits from clients in France, the Netherlands, Australia and the UK.

From the beginning Judith was so lovely to work with! She has clear and quick communication and was very helpful when I wanted to add in extra details. I liked that she sent a digital sketch so I could review and give feedback before she started painting. I’m very happy with the end result she really brought the painting to life and it looks beautiful!

Judith is wonderful to deal with - very informative through out the whole process and comminication was excellent. We all loved the work she produced for my mum, which had small things on which mean a lot to us all.

It was a wonderful process to work with Judith, who was extremely communicative, responsive and open-minded throughout. She provided a digital sketch of the painting and worked with me to make sure I was happy before starting the actual work. We had a few rounds of touch-ups before finalising it too. A stellar experience and painting as a result, and I couldn't recommend Judith more!

We commissioned a painting for my mum's 60th birthday and asked Judith to paint my family into a scene from multiple photos Judithh worked closely with us to make sure that we were absolutely happy and was super responsive to all comments and requests as we moved through the process. The painting arrived today and it is absolutely beautiful. The colours are really vibrant and all figures are recognisable which was really important to us. The result is something that will be special to us all for a long time to come. Highly recommend Judith and thoroughly enjoyed working with her on this process.

Judith took a great deal of time and effort to put together a wonderful watercolour of our home and family for my father’s 70th birthday. Extremely patient and conscientious, she managed to paint from photos and notes and was always so helpful and keen to do whatever she could to make it perfect. She was very attentive to certain details which I wished to be slightly amended. I really appreciate the work she has done and my father is absolutely delighted with the painting. She really captured the essence of our family and home and I would 100% recommend her. Thank you again Judith!

Judith was very flexible on the brief and had a clear understanding of the type of picture we were trying to achieve. The picture was also completed & delivered pre the delivery date!

Judith has been exemplary in both her delivery and communication. She has taken us through the whole process step-by-step and produced a wonderful water colour of our villa in Portugal. Thank you Judith. We shall definitely be back in touch soon with another commission! Kate

Judith recently completed a lovely watercolour of the house that I grew up in. She rendered an instantly recognisable and evocative composition with just the right balance of detail. Judith met a relatively tight deadline and was very good about checking details and preferences as she worked, which included providing me with a sketch before she started painting and then letting me see the work in progress. I had been a little apprehensive that it would be difficult to capture the look and feel of the house working only from photographs, but Judith's work suffered no such limitations. Highly recommended.

I'm so thrilled with the painting we received from Judith. It was a watercolour painting of our wedding day so something very personal and special to us. Judith was great at communication and is a really talented artist. The painting came out fantastic, has a gorgeous frame and was delivered in plenty of time for our anniversary. Thanks again for everything! Sarah and Tony
