About the Artist:
Avon resident Judith Brown states she is inspired by the sky and light, and the blending of colors to create drama. Her subject matter essentially consists of her two favorite locations – Martha’s Vineyard and Italy.  During her travels to Italy, she takes many photographs and uses them for inspiration in her work.  Brown also spends a good deal of time on Martha’s Vineyard and enjoys painting everything from the whimsical gingerbread houses of Oaks Bluff to dramatic beach scenes. 

She has exhibited at the New Britain Museum of American Art, the All Island Art Show in Oaks Bluff, Martha’s Vineyard, and at Hartford restaurant Bin 228. She also participated in the UConn Health Center’s annual Holiday Bazaar and its Spring Market, and has published boxed note cards.

Currently, Brown is a student of Brian Colbath at the Farmington Valley Arts Center.
