About Judy

‘My paintings are inspired by nature, music and my dreams. I could say that my whole life up to this point is recorded in each painting. Collage allows me to enhance textures; it can direct the composition, and it is always a personal storytelling device.”

About Judy Flescher

Judy Flescher is an accomplished abstract painter and collage artist. She has received many awards for her unique style and imaginative use of material. She works primarily in mixed media, including acrylic with collage on canvas, paper and copper, monoprints with collage, watercolors with ink and oil stick, as well as photography.  Some pieces are on free-floating, unmounted canvas, others are on large door panels or stretched canvases.

She studied at the Art Institute of Boston and earned her Bachelor of Arts and Teaching Certification from Framingham State College. Her art is featured in private and public collections.
