ABOUT JUDY COX

Judy Cox is an abstract painter from Oak Island, North Carolina. The objective of her art is to create emotion, she has no interpretation of her art, for that is for the observer to decide. “My process is one of moving away from the painting to contemplate what’s going on which dictates how to continue. It is a balancing act meaning that parts of the painting are scraped off while other parts are added.”

For Judy, the highest regards is for the viewer to enjoy the work. She was originally influenced by a group of Artists in Residence in Maryland which inspired and encouraged her to create, which eventually landed her a second BA in Studio Arts from the University of Maryland. “My relationship with creativity is like all my relationships. There are moments of bliss and moments of pain. But I wouldn’t know the bliss if I didn’t have the pain.”
