My name is Lisa Frances Judd and I am a Blue Mountains Artist from Wimalee NSW, Australia. From the moment I could hold a crayon I have been drawing and painting. Love of art is in my blood as my Mother is also an Artist.
Doing the 'sensible' thing after high school, I went into a corporate career, which lead to running several successful businesses, none of which related to art. I married, had children, divorced and married again.
It wasn't until late 2009, after lower back surgery that I turned to art again during a long recovery period. I found that my ability was still there and art again became a part of my life. I started to draw and paint and put my work out on social media. The sales started to come in, including commissioned paintings both locally and internationally.
In 2011 my life fell apart, my Husband had a breakdown from work stress and my only Son was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer (Glioblastoma Multiforme). The ONLY thing I did when I was not caring for my Son was draw and paint. It became my therapy and my way to not loose my mind from grief and depression.
When my outer world was grey and sad, a canvas and paint could let me see the life and colour that still lived inside me.
My Husband and I established a creative business called Quirky Happy where we created our own unique brand of gift and home decore products featuring my artworks, my husbands photography and work of other talented Aussie Artists that we selected on license agreements. The business ran for 6 years and was very popular with our niche clients.
Over the years, I have participated in numerous group and solo art exhibitions, including one at The Pine Street Gallery, Chippendale, Sydney that was featured in The Sydney Morning Herald's Spectrum Section in 2012. That same year I was included in the ‘Undiscovered’ feature of Art Edit Magazine.
