Her line of original patchwork Hawaiiana blankets & fine linens, plus boutique baby clothes & accessories (coming soon to etsy) are stocked in specialty stores across the Hawaiian islands (including Paia Sun Showers, Designing Wahine, Hale Zen, Aloha Aina Boutique, Sand Kids, & Gifts from the Sea). She also creates canvases for collectors as far away as Japan.

Judi's "When I am Quiet on O'ahu" was nominated for a Reader's Choice Award and her "When I am Quiet on Maui" is a Maui Film Festival Celebrity Gift Baskets official selection (for the last 6 years) and is on the required reading list for Maui preschools. Both are top-rated 5 out of 5 shakas by Joseph Bean of Maui Weekly. Her books were also selected for gift baskets for the Hawaii State Society's inaugural ball for President Obama in DC.

When she is not teaching, painting, writing, or sewing, Judi travels to island schools, stores and libraries and shares stories about the islands' rare, unusual and endangered species.
