An oil and acrylic artist since her teens, jude was known locally for her work yet she found it a difficult and often soul-sucking process, which left her insecure and dissatisfied. Picking up a camera in 2003 was both a surprise and an epiphany to her. “I found it easy and I thought it was a fluke that would end suddenly.” After a few years she realized it was here to stay and even embraced that photography was what she was meant to do.
jude’s photographs are often what she deems to be a melding of reality and the “what could be” of life – be it dreamlike or frightening. They are, in fact, her reality and she invites you all to come and join her.
