I am a painter and mixed media artist from Needham, Massachusetts. Even though I was convinced that I could never be an artist, I began painting relatively late in life on a whim. Painting was supposed to be my husband’s new pastime, but after seeing how much fun he was having slathering paint on a canvas, I joined in immediately and I haven’t stopped since! I love painting abstract works because abstraction frees up the artist to explore one’s inner life as well as the external environment. Often, I am inspired by my memories of and recent escapades to my favorite places. While I may aim to re-create the rich colors, textures, and rhythms found in nature, my paintings also reflect the feelings that I experience when I am surrounded by beautiful landscapes and waterways. More recently, I have also been exploring the medium of collage and gelli-plate printing. Now I am enjoying creating works using my own gelli printed papers along with photos, found papers, and Japanese rice papers. Currently, my studio is at my home in Needham. My work has been shown in numerous exhibits throughout the Metropolitan Boston area and can be found on the Arts Wayland website (www.artswayland.com) and on my website: www.judithsteinart.com.
