About Judy – contact

Artist, explorer, image wrangler, knowledge seeker, creative alchemist, and purveyor of inspiration, helping others channel creativity on a daily basis.

Judy Coates Perez

I’m an International award-winning mixed-media textile artist and author, who travels globally to teach painting and mixed-media techniques and lecture about my creative process and sources of inspiration.

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.

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

My caravan of creativity now resides in Sacramento, CA.

Have a listen to Art and Soul Radio  with Lesley Riley, for an interview about my background and inspiration for my textile art.
