QuilliGraphy is a 2nd career for Judy. She is a registered pharmacist and practiced pharmacy for over 30 years. She now happily devotes her time to her art.

She grew up in York, PA and she was fortunate to have parents that wanted her to learn new skills and to this day, that is one of the most significant and important aspects of her life-the pursuit of new skills and challenges.

She is a 16 year breast cancer survivor and many of her designs are related to healing and encouragement.

She learned calligraphy in the early 1980’s at the local YWCA. Letters have always fascinated her and the drawing skill was reinforced.

Hours and hours and hours of practice of just doing lettering ensued and she started to do projects and gifts for friends and wedding addressing, invitations, etc.

In 1995 she started to add pressed flowers to her work and this created a whole new look that was very satisfactory. Having a botany background enabled her to work on the identification of her flora and she includes that information for each of her designs.

In 1997 she developed QuilliGraphy ™ which specializes in designs that celebrate life and beauty. She will tell you to never give up on your dream and to work very hard.

She is a committed church member and she plays bridge, swims and volunteers for several local organizations.

She has participated in numerous art and craft festivals in New Jersey, Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania. Currently, there are ten QuilliGraphy product lines with more than 130 designs.

Judy recently won an art competition which culminated in the design being presented to Dorothy Hamill, the Olympic ice skater.
