Judy Buxton Summer 2022

This August, New Craftsman Gallery St Ives presents a collection of oil-on-canvas works by award winning painter Judy Buxton. Judy is a Fine Art graduate of both Falmouth College of Art and the Royal Academy Schools in London, and has been awarded the Sir Cyril Sweet Prize, the Royal Watercolour Prize, the Gold Medal from the Worshipful Company of Painter-Stainers, and The Hunting Art Prize. She lives and works on the Lizard Peninsula in Cornwall, where she draws inspiration for her landscape paintings from the area’s unique moorland, coast and river. Other subjects include still life paintings of flowers, and dynamic equine paintings which reflect Judy’s passion for her beloved horses. Deep texture, soft colours and the vigorous use of a palette knife are the defining characteristics of her work. This collection includes landscape, equine and floral works, with a particular emphasis on roses, in response to the accompanying collection of ceramics by rising young artist Chloe Rosetta Bell.
