Artist Information for Judith Roderick
I am an Artist, a Silk Painter who also makes quilts. I have been painting on Silk for 30 years, and I batiked for 20 years before that. I draw well, and love to depict Nature, the flora and fauna of the natural world. I have a great Love of the Earth and a great concern about the current trajectory of life on Earth. I love the beauty and diversity of what still exists here, and I do all that I can to preserve it, which includes its depiction in my work. I intend my Art as a Blessing.
