Hello I am Lisa Frances Judd. I paint a variety of subject matter mostly Nature Art. My style is uniquely my own - abstract/semi-abstract, fun and playful. I love vibrant colors and textures and impasto. When I paint I am painting joy on a canvas. My aim is to transfer that personal joy I feel to you the viewer. My paintings are about uplifting your spirit above the mundane of everyday life.
Look through my Galleries and you will see that I mostly work in groups of themed paintings (called a Series). Commissioned paintings are welcome and I also License my artworks (by written, signed agreement). Please contact me via the Contact Us tab to discuss.
I live and work from my home Art Studio in the beautiful Blue Mountains NSW, Australia. From the moment I could hold a crayon I have been drawing and painting, however adult life and financial responsibilities took me into the corporate world for many decades. I have developed my distinctive styles (there are a few) over many years based on my passion for nature, colour, pattern, texture and my own vivid imagination.
My art career started later in life after many decades working in the corporate world. Back surgery in 2009 forced me to stop work for an extended period. While recovering, I was utterly bored and started to draw and paint again. My passion for art re-ignited and again became an essential part of my life.
Although I did resume corporate work again for a while, in 2011 my life completely fell apart. My wonderful Husband had a breakdown from work stress and months later my only Son was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer (Glioblastoma Multiforme stage 4). The ONLY thing I did when I was not caring for my son James was draw and paint.
Art became my emotional and mental therapy during a time I thought I was loosing my mind from grief and depression. When my outer world was grey and sad, a canvas and paint could let me find my inner joy again. Art literally saved me and led me to my art career. Against all odds and medical expectations, my son James is still alive in 2024 and although post treatment seizure issues need managing, the cancer has not re-occurred. I now call him Miracle Man.
I am blessed that many of my original paintings and prints grace Art Collections, Homes and Offices around the world. I have also achieved considerable commercial success with Art Licenses with Australian and U.S. companies.
My first Solo Exhibition 2013 was at The Pine Street Gallery, Chippendale, Sydney and was featured (not paid for) in The Sydney Morning Herald's Spectrum Section. That same year I was included in the ‘Undiscovered’ feature of Art Collector Magazine & Art Edit. I have participated in many Art Shows/Exhibitions and held a number of solo shows over the many years I have been painting (a list of all Exhibitions is available on request).
I hope one of my paintings, prints or products resonates with you and goes to live in your world. See where to view and buy my art on my Stockists Page.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read about my art practice and my personal journey.
