Judith Vierow’s prints and cards are full of whimsical, colorful scenes that look great in any room, because they add so much life. Many of her scenes are funny, and almost have an animated quality.
Judith Vierow says, “I love old furniture, funky is great. Animals are another source of inspiration. Cats, and dogs more recently, seem to be the animus spiritus of the scene in the painting. I also love folk art, especially Mexican art. I have made one trip to Mexico, but I was painting Day of the Dead images long before I went. Something about their approach to Life and Death and humor that appeals to me.
I’ve been at this thing called “art” in one form or another for a very long time. I sell reproductions of my work at art fairs and over the web, and sometimes have the good fortune to sell an original. I do believe it is possible to make a living doing one’s art, but it is hard work. My husband helps by doing about 80 percent of the work for the booth – matting, printing, driving, setting me up; he’s a real trooper. One of my “lessons” for this lifetime is that the universe wants me to do my art and will help support me through it. I am enjoying the journey.”
