Judith Stewart

Biography from the Archives of askART

Judith Stewart has been a resident of the community of Rancho Linda Vista, in Oracle, Arizona, since arriving as a guest artist in 1991.  At RLV she has a home and a studio, and the company of other residents - artists, kindred spirits and parades of wildlife.  Prior to discovering Oracle, she taught in the Art Department at the University of West Florida, in Pensacola.  She has degrees in painting from Syracuse University, and the University of Illinois, in Urbana.
In 1990, after teaching in Florence, Italy, she was awarded an art grant from the State of Florida to return to Italy.  Following that trip her subject matter was increasingly influenced by the rich historical context of that country, and most importantly by the sculpture, ancient to contemporary, everywhere in evidence. The consequent next step was to begin interpreting her own ideas in sculptural form.  She has been a sculptor since then, firing some pieces in clay and casting others in bronze.
