Announcement   Watercolors, ink and a lot in-between.

Welcome to the gallery of professional, award winning, Oregon artist, Judy Moon. Her paintings with their vivid colors contrasting with black ink hang in Scotland, England, and the Netherlands, as well as many states of the U.S. Ask her why she loves to paint and she’ll answer, “The world is a happy place when I’m painting…my heart fills with peace and the joy of creation.”

She started painting early in life as a means of creating her own happy reality, contrasting with the bleak challenges of her life. Polio at 18 months old placed her in an iron lung until she healed enough to survive nine corrective surgeries, metal braces and crutches, and years of recuperation in bed. Hoping to alleviate the loneliness of isolation, her mother bought her paper, paints, and brushes and was soon delighted by her daughter's new passion.

Ms. Moon won her first award for her artwork at age five from a national contest on afternoon cartoons. At twelve she won first place in the Southern California School Districts Art Competition and at eighteen she competed in a national art competition sponsored by Seventeen Magazine, and won a scholarship for professional training. She attended Western Oregon University in a wheelchair, majoring in art, math, and elementary education. She graduated with honors and won first place in the highly acclaimed art competition, "The Governor's Trophy." Her painting hangs in the governor's mansion.

For the next fifteen years she taught in public schools from her wheelchair. The students were charmed by her courage and positive attitude. She taught her students the joy of creating and the philosophy of the Post Impressionists: the camera freed artists from the tight restraints of portrait painting to interpret their own personal reality.

Since retiring from the classroom, she keeps busy creating artwork, donating her time as bookkeeper for the local art guild, and selling her paintings on Etsy and in local art festivals and gallery shows. Most recently she won first in show in the Oregon Historical Museum Competition and received an award from the Oregon State Disabilities Foundation for her artwork and volunteer work teaching art to children.
Her most recent series of paintings is called "Mother and Child" celebrating the loving bond with her mother, the woman who placed a paint brush in her hand many years earlier.

She sells professional , 90 lb. matte prints of her originals here in her Etsy Shop/Gallery. She offers 5 professional print sizes: 5" x 7" for $10.00, 8" x 10" for $16.00, 11" x 14" for $24.00, 16" x 20" for $65.00, and 20" x 30" for $100.00. Her 8" x 10" ORIGINAL paintings sell for $200.00. 4"x6" prints are attached to blank note cards with envelopes, and 5"x7" prints on post cards with envelopes for $5.00 each. These prints are signed, dated with the title can be framed as miniature artwork. She also creates jewelry incorporating small prints of her artwork.

Pre-cut MATTES are offered for 8"x10" prints. Framed prints are also offered.

Please look around, and thanks for coming in! She hopes you like what you see!

About

Creating My Own Reality

Like everyone else, my life has had its ups and downs. As a child I survived polio's horrific Iron Lung machine and have spent most of my life in a wheel chair. To cope with the unpredictability of life, I turned to Art. I won scholarships at university level to earn my teaching degrees in math and art. Opposite sides of the brain create balanced and organized designs where each shape is as important as the whole picture. I've been asked how it's possible that I can include so much detail. Sitting in a wheelchair gives a person a lot of time to "smell the roses."
After teaching public middle school from my wheel chair for 20 years, I'm now retired and spend my time creating stories with my paintings. I love the nature and wildlife of Oregon which is usually my artwork theme. I'm active in local art guilds, exhibiting and selling my work in galleries, art festivals, and here on Etsy.
I enjoy the interaction with my customers, especially hearing their compliments and enthusiasm for my artwork. Their words create my reality with a smiling heart.

Thank you for looking at my artwork!
I believe art is the silver-lining of life. My art work is meant to not only look pleasant but keep you captivated by the detail. A person's reality isn't always happy. Painting is my way of creating my own reality.
