Dorset based Judy Tate has been drawn to soft pastels for a long time. She finds the versatility, immediacy and vibrancy hard to beat. Most recently the recurring theme is ‘leaves and layers’ – often initiated as an underpainting with monoprinting. 

Her sketchbooks and travelogues are an ongoing source of inspiration.

Underlying all of her work is a love of colour and the excitement of seeing how far she can take it. 

Studio based work (usually inspired by some form of organic form) is often of a more abstract nature. 

Her Poundbury based studio work now seems to be combining the two branches of her work practice, with recurring motif ‘beyond’ and ‘behind’ often with paths going into infinity.

The range of her work can be seen on her website www.judytateartist.com
