Judith Cutler has a background in fine art and graphic design. She received a Bachelor of Arts Degree from Pennsylvania State University.

As a sophomore art major, Judith began to feel a powerful pull toward Abstract Expressionism. Her youthful appreciation for the dynamic colors, shapes, and flowing lines of abstract art, has become a lifelong fascination. Elaine deKooning was one of her early teachers.

For more than 20 years, Judith worked as a corporate designer for IBM, Holiday Inn, and Oakland University, Rochester Hills, MI. Returning to fine arts, she began using pastels as a painting medium, along with mixed-media and acrylics. Pastels soon became her first love.

The Pastel Society of America designated Judith a Signature member (2003) and a Master (2007). She is a Master Circle member (2009) of the International Association of Pastel Societies, Southeastern Pastel Society Member of Excellence, as well as a member of Piedmont Pastel Society and North Carolina Pastel Society.

Judith’s artwork has shown at the Butler Institute of American Art, Youngstown, Ohio; National Arts Club, New York, NY; Peale Museum, Baltimore, MD; Oglethorpe University Museum of Art, Atlanta, GA, among others; and is in the Collection of the Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art, Loretto, PA. She has received numerous national awards and has been published many times in the Pastel Journal. Publications include Art Journey: Abstract Painting, A Celebration of Contemporary Art, by Jamie Markle, and A Brief History of Artists in Eastern North Carolina.

Born and raised in Western Pennsylvania, Judith is currently living in coastal North Carolina. judithcutlerart.com
