In my studio 

The energies and forms of the natural world are the starting point for much of my work. The printmaking techniques and materials I use are an additional inspiration and each different process offers a new approach. This can lead to many contrasts and changes in scale.

Living in Wales, the landscape with its wildlife, flora and fauna, is a never ending source of artistic nourishment.

Other recurring themes include still life, and working with texts and poetry.

I enjoy the challenge of developing images which resonate with the mood and atmosphere of the writing, rather than merely illustrate."

Original Prints

All my prints are made by hand using traditional processes such as collagraph, lino cut and wood block.

They are not reproductions.

 

Most of my work is for sale. For more information please email

Judith-Stroud-2

I love making things. My earliest memories are about playing with transfers, magic colouring books, and sewing. I lived in far away places and still love travelling but South Wales has been my anchor for many years now. My fine art training gave me a useful foundation and nowadays I still love textiles, I’m a keen cook, but my real obsession is printmaking.

Everything I love about living in Wales finds its way into my artwork and more. A windy walk along the seashore or over the hills inspires my next linocut or monotype and offers rich pickings for a wild-food feast.

I was born in England and my early years were spent in various parts of Africa.  

I graduated in Fine Art at the West of England College of Art, Bristol.

I moved to Wales and after a  career in teaching art, I am focussing on my own artistic interests, and in particular my love of printmaking.

My original prints are in many private collections and in the collection of Swansea University.
