About Judy

judy hatI’m an International award-winning mixed media textile artist, traveling globally to teach painting and mixed media techniques on fabric and lecture about my creative process. I received my BFA in graphic design from The Otis Art Institute of Parsons School of Design, but found my true passion when I began working with textiles.

One part gypsy and two parts visual alchemist, I travel to new places, opening up new realms of possibilities for my students by revealing endless ways to combine paint, paper and metal with fabric and the sources of inspiration we all too often overlook in our immediate worlds.


You can find my work between the pages of Quilting Arts and Cloth Paper Scissors magazines, my book; 10+ Techniques with Acrylic Inks, in 3 instructional DVD’s published by Interweave and see me on Quilting Arts TV.

My caravan of creativity now resides in Sacramento, CA.
