Judy Harden

Welcome to Judy Harden

SITE UPDATED 27th June 2020

Judy's career began with a degree course in Textile Design at Leeds University where she won a postgraduate scholarship. She then began her work in retailing, culminating in 20 years as a top specialist in fine antique, portrait miniatures. On retiring in 2010, she returned to painting.

She works from her home studio at Bourton on the Water in the Cotswolds, where visitors are welcome, by appointment. She holds Open Gallery days and exhibits locally. Her work has been bought by clients from countries all over the world. She paints in watercolour,  pen and wash and mixed media. Subjects include landscapes, flowers, buildings, still life, animals and genre. Her inspiration comes from the beauty of the English countryside, both her native county Yorkshire, and her home of 24 years, the Cotswolds. Colour is the most important factor in Judy's painting, which comes from her years as a designer. Light and textures are also vital, she leans towards a strong colour palette which gives her paintings a fresh, lively quality.

She is a member of,  The 'Windrush Artists', 'Fosse Way Artists,' and 'North Cotswolds Arts Association' 

Greeting cards and Giclée Prints,  are available of many of the paintings, these are marked in the descriptions on the Gallery

Sadly, due to the Covid 19 pandemic, I have had to cancel all exhibitions until it is safe again. As soon as I can, I will hold my Home Gallery Exhibition, please contact me for details. Meanwhile many of my new paintings are now on this site. Stay safe and well, warmest greetings
