Judi Rutherford

Judi grew up in the North East before moving to south west England, then Scotland and finally returning to Northumberland in 2012.

A formal introduction to painting in watercolours soon grew to an exploration of acrylics and a chance to find abstract ways of expressing her love and fascination for the wild Northumberland coastlines.

More recently she has been working with pastels made in Northumberland and finds the texture and colour ranges she is achieving with these well suit the beauty and grandeur of the local countryside.

Many of her paintings are taken from sketches and photographs she takes when out and about.
