  33. 33. Judith works in acrylic, watercolor, and mixed media on canvas, fine papers, wood, and found substrates. Her large-scale florals and paintings of bits and pieces of the natural world and animal kingdom have earned her a dedicated following of collectors over the span of her career - celebrating her 30th year as a professional artist in 2011.Judith’s licensed images are available on the ships of Princess Cruise Line, the Cunard Line Queen Mary 2, and through Transformational Threads - with her acrylic painting Peacock Crimson offered in a limited edition series of handmade Vietnamese thread paintings featured in a Smithsonian Trunk show at the Freer + Sackler Galleries in Washington, DC in 2010. With work in numerous public and private collections, one of Judith’s paintings was presented to Hillary Rodham Clinton at President Clinton’s first inauguration in 1993. Judith has painted a number of large-scale murals along the Eastern Seaboard, including a large Sumatran-themed mural at the National Zoo in 2003. Judith spent her childhood out in nature, in the woods and along the creek beds of Northern Pennsylvania. What started as a childhood diversion turned into a lifelong love affair with the natural world, expressed through the art she has created professionally for the last 29 years. The lush shapes of plants, flowers and animals in her acrylics and watercolors are joyfully exuberant and alive with color. <br />Studio & GalleryJudithHeartSong.com240-481-5034<br />Judith HeartSongFine Art<br />
