“With all the uncertainty in the world today, I paint to express the beauty we sometimes miss. I hope my paintings bring comfort and joy to others.”
Freelance studio artist Judy Avrett chooses water based mediums as her vehicle of expression due to their soft fluid quality. Judy believes she has been blessed with a love of art and a gift of expression. She is inspired by nature and her paintings are filled with vivid color and texture.
The artist received BA from Georgia Southern University with post graduate work at the University of South Carolina and Augusta State University. She has studied with numerous nationally known artists such as Edgar Whitney, Carol Barnes, Alex Powers, Tony Couch, Carrie Burns Brown, and Bob Burridge, to name a few. Judy has exhibited in numerous juried exhibitions and her art is displayed in numerous private and corporate collections nationwide.
Judy is proud to have been commissioned by the Augusta National to paint their clubhouse, prints of which sold at the Masters. She was also selected for three consecutive years as Best of Augusta by readers of Augusta Magazine and selected best artist in Columbia County Magazine. She illustrated a children’s book, for author Janelle Taylor, titled How the Zebra Got Its Stripes which was published in 2012.
In addition to painting, Judy currently serves on the board the University Healthcare Foundation Community Board. She teaches an intermediate watercolor class also. Her art can be seen at Art on Broad in Augusta, on Etsy, and on her FB page.
