EDUCATION 

Judy White is a classically trained artist, having studied in Florence, Italy for three and a half years, following the program taught at the French academies in the late 1800’s.  Over two years were spent at the Angel Academy of Art learning the foundations of drawing, and grisaille oil painting.  This was followed subsequently by private study with Master painter Maureen Hyde, an instructor at the Florence Academy of Art.  The lessons with Maureen focused on still life painting in oil.  Topics studied included such areas as drawing, modelling of form, colour mixing, quality of edges, composition, perspective, the fall of light, positive and negative shapes, values, temperatures, the subtleties of half-tones, and techniques to represent all of this in a realist drawing or painting.

A graduate of The University of Western Ontario, Judy moved to Europe in 2000, where she followed her passion for classical realism.  As a Canadian expat living near Munich, she feels fortunate to find inspiration travelling around Europe, and by studying the works of old masters.  Judy is thrilled to be part of the growing number of people all over the world who are finding a renewed interest in classical representational art.   Her work can be found in private collections in Canada, Monaco, Germany and Turkey.
