Judi Brice has always been fascinated by design. After receiving a BA in Marketing from Hofstra University, she went on to work in the wholesale jewelry industry both selling and designing. Judi then moved to Cartier for three years.
Judi spent ten years studying art appreciation through a gallery tour course given by the JCC of Tenafly. This led to her dream of painting her own work.
Judi's paintings can be described as abstract expressionist, and she has been inspired by painters such as Joan Mitchell, Willem de Kooning, Helen Frankenthaler, and Philip Guston. Judi uses her inner compass as her guide. Her compositions explore color and evoke an inner landscape of emotion. She works in oil on canvas.
Judi works in her studio in Haworth, New Jersey. She teaches art to students of all ages and is extremely passionate about sharing her knowledge of art.
Making abstract paintings is about trust and knowing that the individual marks become decipherable in a broader context. Abstraction allows me to tell a story, one that is open to interpretation. My hope is that the viewer brings their experiences to my work and makes the story personal.
The power of color, line, and shape is empowering. I am inspired by how the three elements interact with each other. I use light to create space. My compositions emerge on their own, informed not by specific places but rather by memories, images, and fragments of emotions. My goal is for the viewer to take it all in and share a feeling.
