Judith Appleby is based in North Northumberland and in Newcastle at The Biscuit Tin Studios. She has developed a successful second career as an artist following early retirement from architectural education. Her paintings feature Northumbrian landscapes and industrial Tyneside.
Judith's work emphasises structure and form in landscape, where the man-made and natural forms together to make meaningful patterns, and references to the past. Through her abstracted works of Northern castles she has developed a unique structured style to her paintings. Her imaginative use of colour creates atmosphere in her riverside paintings of staithes and quaysides.
