After relocating to Scottsdale, following a career as owner of a public relations firm in Florida, Judy Feldman decided to pursue the artistic side of her creative right brain. She began oil painting in 1997. Classes include workshops at the Scottsdale Artists School and Scottsdale Community College. At the latter, she has studied with Gloria Gaddis and Robert You.
“My work reflects the influence of the post-impressionist and fauvist artists. The interior landscapes I paint are vignettes that focus on vivid color and interesting shapes. I strive to create a certain mood, as well as an element of whimsy in these works.”
Judy Feldman’s color-saturated canvases overflow with exuberance and things to discover. Some of her paintings are concentrated around the imaginary habitats of one very special dog, Cleo, who is often featured in her sometimes exotic, scrumptious interiors and garden scenes. Cleo – or another four-legged creature - is usually not the focus of Judy's paintings, but an attendee to the scene residing in the luscious surroundings. Still life paintings are another subject she enjoys to convey her love of form and color.
Judy Feldman’s work can be found in numerous private collections. She is represented by the Wilde Meyer Gallery, with locations at Marshall Way in Scottsdale, as well as in Tucson. In 2011, she was the selected artist for the printed materials and auction for “An Evening with Friends,” the annual Arizona Cancer Center fundraiser. Two of Judy’s paintings were chosen for permanent exhibit at the Phoenix Children’s Hospital. She has been featured several times in Phoenix Home & Garden Magazine, and selected to participate in several group shows at the Herberger Theater Art Gallery and the Shemer Art Center; as well as exhibits at the ASU Gammage Theater, the Kerr Cultural Center and the Broadway Palm Dinner Theater. Judy has been an eight-year recipient of the Vortex Award for Literature and Art of Scottsdale Community College.
