Jude Scott is an award winning artist who specializes in watercolour and lives in Perth, Western Australia.
Her art education began by studying ceramics for four years at Technical Colleges in Perth and Sydney, afterwards working as a potter for several years, Jude then began painting. She has since studied oils, acrylics, drawing and watercolour with professional artists and tutors in Western Australia and NSW Australia and in China.
More recently time has been spent with Chinese professors and exploring the differences between Chinese and Australian approaches to watercolour has been a fascinating and very insightful experience for Jude who is planning to return to China for further study.
Jude says "I am drawn to the magical medium of watercolour because of it's diverse nature. From the powerful opaque darks through to the lightest, most delicate washes of translucent and pastel tones to rich and vibrant colours, the wonderful textures and effects that can be produced in watercolour I find endlessly fascinating. Watercolour can also be notorious for it's unpredictability, but that is all part of the challenge!"
A popular demonstrator and tutor Jude has tutored workshops from Newman in the North West of Western Australia to Margaret River in the south , Claremont School of Art, Atwell Gallery in Alfred Cove, Perth, as well as various council and community arts groups on request.
She presently teaches classes in her beautiful garden studio and gallery and organises workshops on request in Perth and country locations in Western Australia, and recently has organised international workshops in Ubud, Bali June 2018 and again at Ubud in June 2019.
