Judith N. Brook Lic. Esthetician, RMT, M.F.Phys. Author, Artist. I am a self-taught artist, influenced by the need to express myself and nature. In my 20s I began creating images with charcoal and pencil on any surface I could find, then graduated to oils.
Life activities changed how I expressed my artistic skills. I won many awards as a professional make-up artist, a different kind of canvas. I built and renovated houses, decorating them with paintings directly on the walls. My yard became my canvas: shrubs, flowers, ponds, fruit trees, resulting in a number of awards locally and across Canada.
In 2010 I began working with pastels. Frustrated with the lack of available colors in my area, I bought acrylic paints and small canvas.
In 2015, I found an artist, Maureen Newton, who offered drop-in sessions at her Inspire Gallery, to guide me when I needed help. From there I grew, experimenting in styles, colors, canvas size and subjects.
I enjoy the fine details of my subject, but I have also discovered the freedom of the abstract. Most of my paintings are: from my imagination, observing nature’s ways but not copying them, or, inspirations from other artists.
