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 translucent pastel tones and colours, the wonderful textures and effects that can be produced are endlessly fascinating. Watercolour can also be notorious for it's unpredictability, but that is 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, has taught at Claremont School of Art, Atwell Gallery in Alfred Cove, Perth, as well as various council and community arts groups on request. She presently organizes workshops throughout the year in Perth and at country locations, and teaches in her beautiful garden studio and gallery.
Recently Jude's studio was featured in Creative Artist Magazine-issue 14 2017 .
Jude has two articles in the current Artist's Palette Magazine -issue 152 -featuring her artworks and a demonstration of painting 'White Orchids' 2017.
