Jude Woodland was born in Victoria, British Columbia. She studied art at the Institute Allende in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, and at the Victoria College of Art. Since her childhood she has produced works in watercolour, paper-mache sculpture, and acrylic and oil painting on canvas.
Jude’s oil and acrylic paintings are a collection of imaginative and representational realities. They are often mythopoeic landscapes that celebrate the glory innate in nature. She works with a vibrant palette that provides an unlimited opportunity to represent the interactive life of colour. As she moves beyond a sense of right doing and wrong doing she finds a place to record her personal interpretive journeys, a place of integrating creative expression, theory, and the abundant inspiration from nature. This calling of creativity and connection in nature evokes a sense of belonging and contentment. It is this feeling that she hopes to share in her paintings. Exhibitions/Representation:
