Judy Loper demonstrated a strong aptitude for art at an early age. She credits the encouragement of her junior high school art teacher as the stimulus for her lifelong interest in art and art education. Judy received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Oklahoma in 1969. She then moved to southern California where she began her career as an educator and her vocation as an artist, participating in several professional shows. In 1981 she received A Master of Education degree from Oklahoma's Central State University Junior College and Community College Art Education”.
While her art has taken many twist and turns over the last 25 years she has always returned to painting. although she also enjoys producing digital art .
Judy's current painting is mainly in acrylic and watercolor. Her favorite subjects are flowers and still lifes with a few landscapes and some figurative works. Judy says 'the style is dictated by the response I would like from the person viewing the work to have. I love art that is beautiful and yet keeps a sense of mystery for the viewer. I want my art to be enjoyed day after day.' Judy's newer works are done on a unique background using a “Nouveau-Fresco” process (a plaster ground). The ground is cracked and tinted , which gives the work an antique look. then finished by using traditional drawing and painting techniques on that ground.
When Judy works in the digital world she starts with a photo usually of water gardens or flowers. Then creates her own view of that subject in Photoshop. She completes the process by printing .These work are available as a print-on-demand.
