Judy Bauman is an artist in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. She was born and raised in Wilber, Nebraska, a small town best known for celebration of its Czech heritage. Her mother was a well-known artist specializing in Czech art. Judy studied art at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and Ball State University. She also studied the ancient art of batik while living in Thailand and during visits throughout Southeast Asia. Judy studied with Jane Filer for more than four years and is currently studying with Chad Hughes.
She begins each painting with a loose charcoal sketch on canvas. Imagination is the source of ideas for her work. The style is impressionistic. Judy uses acrylic, oil and burlap, usually on large canvas. Paint is applied with assorted palette knives, and a brush is used sparingly. Additional characteristics of her work includes the use of thick paint, bold colors, and interesting subject matter. Judy creates paintings to comprise series with common themes, demonstrating how experience with the same subject can build a strong collection.
