JUNE Artist of the Month
Artist Reception - Saturday, June 11th
Watching artists on TV helped Judy DeBolt learn how to put her creative ideas onto canvas. This led to winning a contest and now to being June’s Artist of the Month at Ledge Craft Lane.
For Judy, those creative ideas came from viewing the world. She says “beauty in nature has always been a personal fascination and started for me at a very young age. I’ve always appreciated being out in nature and exploring all the visual possibilities it has to offer. Camping was an excellent time for watching how the natural world changes.” Her view of the world is reflected in her paintings.
Judy says she is not classically trained in art nor has she had any lessons until more recently. In the past she would tune into WKAR and watch Helen VanWyke, Jerry Yarnell and Bob Ross. For the past three years she has taken lessons with Kerri Goodman at Ledge Craft Lane. She’s gaining informative art insight including mixing colors and thinking outside the box.
Judy’s work will be on display for the entire month. Her artist’s reception will be on Saturday, June 4th
from 2-4pm at Ledge Craft Lane, 120 S. Bridge St in GL. Judy says “it’s been a great journey working on the paintings and I look forward to a continuation of learning and observing all that is around me. I hope you enjoy my work as much as I enjoy creating it.”
