My name is Lisa Frances Judd and I am a Blue Mountains Artist from Wimalee NSW, Australia. From the moment I could hold a crayon I have been drawing and painting.
Love of art is in my blood as my Mother is also an Artist. Although my Mother went through Art School, I am self taught and have developed my own distinctive style over many years based on my passion for colour, pattern and my own vivid imagination.
Rather than following my passion for art, to please my family I did the ‘sensible’ thing after high school and went into a long corporate career, which lead to running several successful businesses, none of which related to art. I married, had children, divorced and married again.
It wasn’t until late 2009, after lower back surgery that I turned to art again during a long recovery period. I found that my ability was still there and art again became an essential part of my life. I started to draw and paint and put my work out on social media.
In 2011 my life fell apart, my Husband had a breakdown from work stress and my only Son was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer (Glioblastoma Multiforme). The ONLY thing I did when I was not caring for my Son was draw and paint. It became my therapy and my way to not loose my mind from grief and depression. When my outer world was grey and sad, a canvas and paint could let me see the life and colour that still lived inside me.
My Art is how I share my my young-at-heart spirit. I cannot imagine my life without it, it is like breathing to me.
