Judys art career began the 1980s with painting. Love of color brought her to stained glass. Intrigued by kaleidoscopes, it soon became her second passion. From there, she started fusing scrap glass in a microwave kiln, which led to wire wrap as a medium to use the glass in jewelry designs since 1993, wire art has consumed a good portion of her time. In 2000, Judy began classes at William Holland, taking numerous classes, and in 2001, she began Lampwork classes. Since that time, she has taken several works shops and course from any instructor, devoting most of her time to glass beads. Judy has been producing and selling at art galleries and craft festival thought the Southeast since 1987.
