Artist’s Statement:

I am a mixed-media artist primarily self-taught. I live in the Pacific Northwest on the Olympic Peninsula surrounded with much beauty and lots of forest. Currently my work is about celebrating and combining mediums with a focus on beadwork, fibers and art dolls. I have been beading and creating since about 1970 and I consider my work new and constantly evolving.

The jewelry pieces I create are designed to wake the senses so that each inspired piece is an original, one of a kind, work of art for the wearer and observer to enjoy. The Art Dolls and Vessels I create are often a reflection of something working beneath the surface of my consciousness.

Each piece is created intuitively from spirit in a meditative process. During the creative process, I focus on the interplay of colors, shapes and textures and through this journey of exploration an object of art is born. My work involves the mastery of craft and the intuitive process of creation.

My inspiration is usually found in the beads themselves, it may be the color, or the shape, or how they interact together. Beads have a Spirit all their own ~ they speak to me in a language my spirit understands. — Barbara Judy
