I’m excited about today’s guest– smiles… I met Judith on FB about two weeks ago and immediately fell in love with her dreamy paintings. After browsing her page a bit I contacted her (in english) and after a while we found out that she’s German as well– smiles– here it goes…
Judith Clay is a traditional artist born in Germany who works primarily in ink, pastel, colored pencil, and collage on drawing or watercolor paper.
She completed a three-year apprenticeship for ceramic painters in Germany and earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in comparative literature in the United States.
Her drawings are often called
“dark and whimsical”, and reflect her love for story-telling, fairytales, antique toys and dolls, animals, and nature.
Working on her art keeps her sane, and, at the same time, lets her escape she says.
Judith has exhibited in Germany, Norway, and Greece, and been published in art magazines in Taiwan and the US.
Her first children’s book, Thea’s Tree, story and illustrations will be available 2014.
She’s now also looking forward to a solo and a group exhibit in Estonia in November.
