Judy Salinsky ~ Sculptor & Painter
Every time I open my studio door, I can hear creative voices from all directions; “Start with me first!” “No, over here!”
Graduating from UC Irvine with a Bachelor's in Dance, my eclectic pursuit of art led me beyond dance, into pursuing new avenues of my artistic passion. As a dancer, I learned the importance of keeping a balance between discipline and true artistic freedom. As an artist, I continue to learn.
After the three-dimensional world of dance, my explorations into two dimensions started with strengthening my artistic foundations: drawing, light, and the human form. The next big step was the study of color. Adding color to an art piece accentuates one's drawing, I wanted my work to be correct. This led me to study color theory with the Spanish master of impressionist painting; Sebastian Capella.
After many years exploring the 2-D art form, my father, an award-winning wood craftsman, inspired me to revisit my roots, I began to sculpt. Beginning a re-exploration into my three-dimensional desires, my bronze sculpting efforts earned multiple awards and commissions.
I continue to work eclectically as an artist. Oil painting, sculpting, and my kitty, Angel, all vie for equal time in my art studio.
