Born in Budapest, Hungary, and escaping that communist country in 1956, Judy moved to Cleveland, Ohio, where she began painting at an early age and, at 13, took first place for the design of the City Holiday Card.
Judy studied fine art at the Cleveland Institute of Art and the Cooper School of Art, which led to a four-year scholarship to Kent State University. After graduating with honors, Judy began her painting career by showing her colorful paintings at the Shaker Heights Artist's Cooperative Gallery. Her work soon became sought after and now hangs in private collections throughout the United States, Europe and Israel.
Soon after moving to Florida, Judy was commissioned to paint 24 paintings for the Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport. Over the years, Judy's talent and wealth of experience has brought an open-minded adaptive process to her paintings, which have earned her a covey of regional and national awards.
Judy is the owner and creative lead at Yudit Design, a full-service advertising and graphic design firm located in Wellington, Florida (www.yudit.com).
Because of her belief that fine art is the essence of graphic design, Judy has received recognition both for her paintings and for her graphic design work which has garnered several Advertising Federation Silver Addy's.
