JUDY DREW WAS BORN IN 1951 IN VICTORIA, AUSTRALIA. AFTER STUDYING GRAPHIC ART IN MELBOURNE, SHE WORKED IN GRAPHIC DESIGN BEFORE MOVING TO BOUGAINVILLE ISLAND, THE NORTH SOLOMONS WHERE SHE LIVED FOR NINE YEARS. HER OIL PAINTINGS, PASTELS, SKETCHES AND WATERCOLOURS OF THE LOCAL PEOPLE ESTABLISHED HER REPUTATION AS A FINE ARTIST.

HER EXPERIMENTATION WITH PASTEL CONTINUED ON HER RETURN TO AUSTRALIA AND OVER THE PAST THIRTY YEARS SHE HAS PRODUCED BOTH FIGURATIVE AND STILL LIFE WORKS. ALTHOUGH A TRADITIONAL ARTIST, HER GROWING INTEREST IN THE INFLUENCE OF JAPANESE ART ON THE POST IMPRESSIONISTS LEAD TO A GRADUAL CHANGE IN STYLE. HER PASTELS SHOWED A MORE SIMPLIFIED USE OF COLOUR AND SHAPE - CREATING WORKS WITH A MORE CONTEMPORARY EDGE.

DREWS WORKS GLOW WITH AN INTENSITY OF COLOUR RARELY SEEN IN PASTELS.

SINCE RETURNING TO AUSTRALIA, HER CREATIVE WORK ALONG WITH HER REPUTATION HAS BLOSSOMED. DREWS WORK IS IN HIGH DEMAND BY INVESTORS, GALLERIES AND PRIVATE COLLECTORS WORLDWIDE. Read Less
