thought provoking imagery
of Judith's paintings.
Judith Edge has been an artist/sculptor all of her life. She studied at John
Herron School of Art, affiliated with Purdue University, and completed liberal
arts studies at Butler University and Riverside City College.
While employed at Chaw Se Indian Grinding Rock State Historic Park, in Pine Grove, CA; she
developed and coordinated the first three years of the now annual Indian
Art Exhibition. This Indian Art Invitational has become a very important event
on the tribal calendar.
She has also organized and produced venues for other artists such as prize
awarding exhibitions and shows for artists' exposure. Holding a lifetime
California Community College Teaching Credential, Judith has several
hundred hours of experience teaching children and adults; all the while
working at her own creative process.
Now, focusing on her art full time, she brings all of her instincts and training
to bear on the digital fine art arena. With technology in hand, she has
developed a new system for displaying digital art. Digitally creating her
Premiere Mask Series, each image is mounted to acrylic: and the resulting
Wall Sculpture "plays" with ambient room lighting.
Judith is an award winning fine artist in traditional media and her work can
be found in private collections in Canada and in the Midwest.
