Judy Crowe

Judy A. Crowe is a native Texan who studied with Lindy Daly of Houston since moving to Houston in 1988. She has studied via workshops with these nationally know artists: Tom Browning, John Michael Carter, Quang Ho, Gay Faulkenberry, Dan Gerhartz, Ann Templeton, Marlin Linville, Kevin McPherson, Ted Goerschner, Charles Sovek, Scott Burdick, Charles Movali, Matt Smith, and Scott Christenson. Crowe’s subject matter includes figurative, still life, and landscape. Her direct representational style is painted from life either in the studio or plein air. Collections include Kwik Copy Corporation as well as private collections nationwide. She currently demonstrates oil painting technique and teaches workshops throughout the state of Texas.

My goal as a representational fine artist is to create artwork that portrays the beauty of our natural creation faithfully and honestly to the best of my ability. I strive not for a photo realistic duplication of the scene before me but to creatively and beautifully depict life and light as I see it regardless of subject matter. Color and form are tangible but elusive qualities in light. Learning to see requires years of hard work and commitment to render these elements honestly. My goal is to continue to strive for perfection in my work and to grow as an artist. Becoming a true artist requires commitment to continue the journey of what it means to be a representational fine artist, a life-long endeavor.
