Judy Palfrey

MEET THE ARTIST    Judy Palfrey

Judy’s love for painting emerged in elementary school when she won her first contest for her painting of a Robin. It was used on the cover of her school magazine. She grew up in suburban Philadelphia and attending Penn State University studying Interior Design and Early Childhood Ed., graduating with a BS degree in Home Economics.

 While teaching in New Jersey, she studied with artist, Anthony Ventura for ten years, worked in oils, acrylics and watercolor. After moving to New Hampshire, Judy studied with artists Joan Wirth, Mary Bohn, Sylvia Brofos, Kevin Dadoly and the late Loran Percy.

 She enjoys painting a wide variety of subjects. “My paintings are inspired by the flowers in our gardens, nature around me, the beauty and events of my travels across our amazing country and where I have traveled around the world.”

 In August 2002, the Peabody Home, Franklin, NH commissioned her to paint eleven large scenic murals on the walls of a long hall that connected two parts of their Facility. She completed this project in the Spring of 2003.

She was instrumental in having Franklin, NH community members from 6 to 92 years of age design and paint thirty 30” x 6’ light post banners representing the history and joys of the city. Twenty-two banners were completed in 2004 with eight were added in 2006. They were exhibited on city light posts through 2012, for all to enjoy.

In 2013 she was awarded the opportunity to create the new Merrimack County, NH Seal. This was the first change to the seal in over 100 years. It is currently being used by all departments of the county.

She is now working mostly in watercolor, yet still enjoys oils and acrylics.

Judy and her husband enjoy a wide variety of hobbies, traveling, volunteering and most of all spending time with family. She and husband recently moved to Lititz, PA.

Judy is a member of the NH Lakes Region Art Assoc. and the Lititz Art Assoc.

Through the years, she has won awards for her paintings and recognition for her community work. 

Her paintings are owned by collectors and businesses around the world. Judy says, “It is so exciting to know my art is hanging in many states and countries I may never visit. Many people who purchase my work say, they want to remember their visit to our state and/or our country with a painting they can enjoy every day.” 

She recently started doing Pet Portraits and Family Trees. Please contact her if interested in one of these items.
