There are two threads to Judy Gilley’s work. The first is semi abstract landscapes of places which hold special significance for her, the second thread involves zany still lives often with unexpected juxtapositions of everyday objects.
Since 2017 the enormous variety of land and seascapes of the Isle of Man have provided her with the challenge to capture changing moods with the dramatic changes in weather. The Peak District and Derbyshire landscapes are also a recurring obsession for her landscapes because of their emotional associations.
Judy paints mainly in gouache for its vibrancy.
She has exhibited in London, Derbyshire, Hertfordshire and Norfolk and her work is in private collections in the UK, The United States, Australia and Spain.
Judy also ran a private gallery in North London for five years and organised and curated many exhibitors of her own and other artists work.
