Current Work & Pines of Arcadia

In 2017, Judy had a personal studio project completed in the woods of Arcadia in Northern Michigan. Her dream and that of her husband was for her to have a studio to create work in isolation; they discovered the property together while vacationing before he died. Pines of Arcadia is a spacious studio and exhibition space built into a sand dune and surrounded by pines. Pines of Arcadia is a non-profit project, and the studio and surrounding property is open for artist residency - an opportunity that will continue to serve artists in the Midwest for years to come.

Judy has completed multiple works at Pines of Arcadia, including Nurses and Doctors - a series of 100 portraits created during the Covid-19 virus pandemic.
