I was a featured artist at the 2019 Chalk Walk & Street Painting in Tempe AZ at Tempe Marketplace. The pastel that I created as a study for the 5 ft x 5 ft chalk mural is available for sale in my shop. It’s an homage to Mucha with a southwestern twist.

Love of Creation

I have been drawing and painting since childhood, working in pencil, watercolor, and acrylic. I received my BFA degree from the University of Arizona in 2002, set up my home studio shortly after, and added clay to my repertoire. I am also on Etsy under JudithArnaudGary where I sell my clay creations, open since 2010. Here’s the link if you’d like to visit:

I have always had the drive and need to create. But besides the need for creating, I hope to evoke a response and participation from the viewer. Viewers add their own perspectives and experiences when interpreting artwork. The artist, together with the viewer, bring a work of art to its fruition. I have found Etsy to be a wonderful way to reach an incredibly wide audience. It's also wonderful to view other people's creations. It's a great community of "hand makers" and people who appreciate the "hand made”.

I also create street art for Chalk Mural Art Festivals in Arizona and California. The original chalk or color pencil paintings created for the murals are available for sale. The tradition of the Chalk Art Festivals originated in 16th century Renaissance Italy when artists began transforming pavement into canvas using chalk. The artists were called “madonnari,” after their customary practice of creating chalk paintings of the Madonna. Today, artists worldwide are continuing this ancient form of expression. I have pictures in the About Section if you’d like to see the murals and more info.

    I work in my home studio in Tucson, AZ. I create with clay, painting, drawing. I am greatly influenced by the beautiful desert surroundings where I was born and raised. My goal as an artist is to capture the spirit and energy of the world around me.
