JUDGE–Judy Knott
In 2008 Judy Knott went on an art studio tour in Elk Grove California where she was living at the time. A friend of her husband had just given her some oil paints and a small easel. At the last tour stop she met Kate Anderson whose artwork she admired and who had decided to start teaching art again. She jumped at the chance to take lessons. “Thank goodness that my first experience learning how to paint was from someone who knew how to bring out the best in me,” she said. Judy has gone on to receive her Master Artist certification and has shown her work at Crocker Art Museum, Marin Museum of Contemporary Art and the California State Fair. She has won many awards in both local, national and international art shows. Visit Judy’s website at http://knottjustart.com to view more of her artwork.
