About the artist:
Working in a variety of media, including watercolours, acrylics, coloured pencils and printmaking, with one medium often feeding off another, Judith’s art is largely based around the human figure. Her work often features scenes of everyday life: a walk with the dog, someone lost in a good book, scenes captured in sketchbooks, committed to memory, or conjured in dreams and imagination. Having previously lived in Chile for almost a decade, a search for identity and belonging, a sense of place, are also common themes throughout. Her love of pattern, vintage and retro is evident in many of her pieces.
She exhibits regularly in several galleries in Northern Ireland and is a recent Past President of the Ulster Society of Women Artists, which she joined in 2016, winning the Lily Davies New Member Award. The artist is also a member and regular exhibitor with the UKCPS, (United Kingdom Coloured Pencil Society). Other noteworthy shows include the Sunday Times Watercolour Competition, the Society of Women Artists, and the 2021 open exhibition of The Royal Institute for Painters in Watercolour, all in The Mall Galleries, London, as well as several years with the Royal Watercolour Society’s CWC, and the Royal Ulster Academy’s 2018 and 2014 annual exhibitions in Belfast, (shortlisted 2015 and 2016). Her work has been sold to private collectors worldwide.
The artist’s home studio/gallery, The BlackSheep, which she shares with her husband Hernán Farías, of HFPhotography, offers viewing by appointment as well as some workshops, special exhibitions and events throughout the year. She also has a small collection of work from other Irish artists for sale there. Follow the gallery on Facebook and Twitter to keep up to date with what’s on.
Her limited-edition handmade linocut prints, monoprints, collagraphs and drypoints are available for purchase here in her online shop. She will shortly be adding more to the store, including art cards, giclee prints, and a selection of smaller, unframed originals on canvas and works on paper, so please visit often to keep an eye out. Judith also has an Etsy shop where she has successfully sold to buyers worldwide for the last 6 years.
