Hi, I'm Judy
I love colour, contrast and bold patterns. I love creating something out of nothing. I love the escapism and freedom that creating art provides, and I love being able to do something I'm passionate about and motivated by every day.
I'm a North London-based artist who paints expressive floral and landscape paintings in acrylics. I can also be found with my other favourite medium - coloured pencils - drawing predominantly animal life, requiring a different level of focus and offering an opportunity for an alternative creative outlet!
Playing with scale, contrast and pattern, I create contemporary takes on my nature-inspired subjects. With all my work, my aim is to create decorative, striking pieces which have lots to explore. I enjoy experimenting with degrees of abstraction, and I vary my practice from representational work through to more abstract versions of my style. The results are energetic, colourful, statement pieces which celebrate nature whilst also creating decorative pieces to liven up interior spaces.
From a young age, I've always had creative flair, and arts and crafts have been lifelong hobbies. I attended Oxford University to pursue a mainstream university path, followed by a career in the corporate world, with a fear that Art would become a chore if I continued to study it past A-levels!
After keeping it on the side for many years, the creative in me was unsatisfied and I set up Judy Century Art to follow my dreams and to allow me to create everyday. It is a great pleasure to be able to share my work more widely offering colourful, contemporary art for homes and workplaces.
My work is permanently on display at the Wynd Gallery in Letchworth, UK, and I participate in art fairs and exhibitions throughout the year - see the 'News and Features' page for more details. My work has also been featured in Homes and Gardens UK magazine in their Art Edit.
I'd love to provide a special piece of art for you! Please have a look through my collection, or if you're looking for something bespoke and personal, I offer commissions and I'm ready to work with you to create something special!
