Demo: Pen & Wash and Collage.  Subject – wildlife either on its own or in a landscape in an illustrative style. 

Judit works with lots of detail in an illustrative style.  She gets inspiration from paper-cutting artists and her Hungarian heritage with rich folk art. Mediums are pen and ink (using liquid ink with a dip pen) with some watercolour or acrylic ink for colour; sometimes collage for extra texture, using origami paper or patterned wallpaper.

Judit’s work has appeared in The Leisure Painter and The Artist.  She won the Surrey Life magazine’s Landscape Painter of the year 2017 competition and her work has been accepted for the Society of Women Artists exhibition. She illustrated a children’s book The Daring Droplets’ Diary. Judit exhibits in various galleries around the country and is a member of the Tadworth art group.
