Judith Saunders is a landscape artist who lives and paints in Victoria, BC and Grand Lake, NB. She believes in the old adage "Paint What You Know". Judith has had a love affair with trees for as long as she can remember. "Trees are sacred to me and connect us with the spirit of the earth and the spirit of life".
Leaving a successful art career in Atlantic Canada she moved with her family to Victoria in 1988 and attended the University of Victoria to obtain her Fine Arts degree. Since launching her art career in 1979 Judith has had 48 solo exhibitions and 89 group shows to her credit and continues to paint full time.
Painting mainly in acrylics her art captures the essence of light and shadow as it transforms old growth forests and hazy shorelines. She is presently creating a series on nature and hopes her paintings will remind us that the natural beauty of our wild places must be protected for future generations. As John Muir wrote, "In every walk with nature one receives more than he seeks".
