“I have purchased several pieces of art  from Judith. They are outstanding. The attention to color and detail is
amazing. Judith's work makes me feel happy and everyone that views her pieces hanging in my office feels the
same way. She creates happiness. I consider myself fortunate to own two of her pieces.

of multi-layered color and light is expansive. Her florals expand on the tradition of O'Keefe, and the series of

has depicted each step in the journey of her life. She is an inspiration. Her natural talent reflects and captures
her passion and her keen ability to see the beauty in life. We could all learn from her example, and,
fortunately, we can all enjoy and appreciate her artwork.”    Barbara Kessler

force: indefatigable and genuine. Just when you think you know all about her, she unfolds another pedal of her
talent or personality. Always growing, creating, and evolving, she is the quintessential artist who happens to
have enriched my life for over thirty years.”    Mike Foley

“Four of Judith's paintings grace the walls in my home. She is not only a true talent, but a lovely person in
every aspect. The paintings I own are gloriously full of color, and yet have a soulful quality that I love. One of
my favorites "Gone But Not Forgotten" hangs in my office and I often find myself lost in the painting. Mostly
though, I am happy to say that Judi is one of my few "forever friends".”    Barbara Hooley

“Judith's work is an inspiration, the colors, the detail, the ideas. What's just as amazing though, is that Judith
herself is an inspiration. She has a wonderful capacity to encourage growth in all the people around her, and
appreciate the joy in her life. It's wonderful watching her work come alive, and seeing her appreciation of the
world, in her flowers, animals, and shells. Just as wonderful is seeing her appreciation in those little tiny
moments we have, kind visitors, children's amazement, and small treasured finds.”   Marieke Bier, Artist and
Web Designer, Alpine Butterfly

“I first met Judith at a Friday art open house at VisArts in Rockville, Maryland. She warmly welcomed me and
every other visitor to her studio and related delightful stories about her long career in art, her research and
work in progress, and her ideas for new work. Her big, bold and beautifully executed paintings, her custom
work in particular, caught my eye, and I decided to follow up the next week by asking Judith for a meeting to
talk about licensing an image of one of her acrylics to my business, Transformational Threads.

Judith is a savvy business professional who gives a lot of attention to promoting and marketing her art. If she
has questions, she takes time to become informed so that she can respond appropriately. She understands very
well the business side of art -- the part of an art career that many artists dislike and either fail to learn or
ignore. She welcomes opportunities that open the door to prospective new purchasers and appreciators of her
work, always with an eye to ensuring the integrity and maintaining the quality of her art.

When I sent her an e-mail requesting a get-together, Judith responded promptly and we made arrangements
to meet and talk about my licensing business. Subsequently, we exchanged additional information to which
Judith gave careful and thoughtful consideration, and we later signed an agreement. Judith licensed her
gorgeous "Peacock (Crimson)" to Transformational Threads and the limited-edition embroidered rendering of
that image -- what is called a thread painting -- became available through my small company at the start of
2010.

Our association did not end with the signed licensing agreement. Judith works with me to market and promote
the thread painting via her wonderfully informative newsletter and daily blog, includes additional
information on her Website, and continues to keep on hand for visitors to her studio a supply of
Transformational Threads business cards, postcards, and brochures bearing the Peacock image. I have also
done a lengthy interview with Judith that I published on my blog, Writing Without Paper, as an All Art Friday
Special Edition. Again, seeing the potential of exposure, Judith noted the published interview in her blog and
newsletter and includes on her Website a link to the post.

Judith, as I've come to learn, is a tireless encourager and promoter of other artists she knows and does a lot of
work on behalf of VisArts, making it one of the most successful arts centers I've visited. She's involved in many
events there (such as workshops), giving the gift of time and resources that benefit all of the center's artists.
Highly organized, a person who always follows through, deeply knowledgeable about and completely devoted to
making art, Judith is a delight to work with. I am proud of my business relationship with Judith and of our
friendship.”    Maureen Doallas, Owner, Transformational Threads
