Judy Regnier is a Northern California artist and her passion is watercolors, although at times she chooses to paint with acrylics or encaustics. Although experienced for over forty years in unique art through oils and acrylics, she continues to learn and try new media in her current projects.
She did not explore watercolors until she moved from Florida to California and experienced the glowing light and landscapes which stirred her to try the new medium. Painting the historic and sweeping landscapes near and far has kept her delight in painting ever since!
Judy studied art at Northern Illinois University and Illinois State University and further with artists both in Florida and in the San Francisco Bay Area. She now lives in the Mother Lode of the Sierra Foothills, and she is a member of Amador County Artists Association and Amador Arts Council.
Being a member of Sutter Creek Gallery, she always displays her newest work at the gallery; she is also an active participant in Art in Public Places, a program of the ACAA to display art throughout Amador County businesses and civic places on a rotating basis. She participates in the ACAA Open Studios and the Art Show of the Amador Branch AAUW Home Tour, which provides scholarships for Amador County women and girls.
Judy feels she has special sight into God's glory around her in our mountain beauty; she is a liver transplant recipient and is tremendously grateful for every day that she has survived since then and attempts making her paintings show hope and light to those who view them. She is also a breast cancer survivor. She volunteers with Donate Life California to encourage others to save lives by registering; she knows the difference just one donor can make in the lives of up to fifty people!
