About the Artist
Judith Meyers Studio
My life long love of the out-of-doors gently guided me to

most mundane subject can become powerful when bathed in a
Many of my oil paintings were created au plein air or in
combination with a photograph. The light can be so fleeting! My
style has been described as tonal-impressionistic. My training
was in the impressionist style. However, in my efforts to add an
emotional aspect to my work, I will often borrow from the
techniques used by the American Tonalists of a century ago.
Recently, I have been painting the human figure. My preference
is to show the figure in a natural setting. My art subjects come
from in and around the places I have lived and also from the
places I have traveled.
My formal education was focused on my becoming an art educator. I have taught all art mediums in Connecticut schools for over 20 years.
Painting, however, has always been my first choice for personal expression. I have studied the works of painters past and present. I sought out
instruction with those contemporary painters that I most admired, among them: Shawna Shane, Hollis Dunlop, and Christopher Zhang.
For five years, I was owner and operator of Ironic Art. I created hand-painted silk fabrics and furniture for the design industry. My hand-painted silk
drapes and decorative pillows were once featured in Better Homes and Gardens.
