Peggy Judy – Premium Member of the Western Art Rodeo Association

Peggy Judy was born to be an artist.  She realized that even as a child.  Her destiny was sealed by one important fact: she was smitten by the natural beauty of her native Colorado.  So, she painted and drew throughout her high school and college years.  Upon graduation from Colorado State University  in 1982 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts and a concentration in illustration,  she began her professional career as an illustrator, working for various corporations and the Dept. of Energy, all in the Denver area.
When she married a equine veterinarian in 1988, Peggy was able to meld her passion for all things “horse” with her art, although she spent much of her time breeding, raising, training and selling Warmblood Sport horses. Today, having raised her two children (both are accomplished horsemen!), she has more time for painting and a renewed vigor for it.

Artist Statement

My work has been categorized as Contemporary Western. Traditional and well honored western subject matter with a different perspective, expressive interpretation. Drawing and draftsmanship is the skeleton of all my work. Without an understanding of draftsmanship and proportions the piece will fall apart. The drawing will establish the substance and balance. Then the color, shapes and lines take the subject beyond the usual. Negative space is as important to the balance of the piece as the positive space. Lastly providing detail, while at the same time keeping brush strokes to a minimum.
