The Magical World of Artist Judy Mastrangelo
For most of her life, Judy has been drawing and painting in all genres, from Realism, to Impressionism and Abstractionism. She paints a wide variety of subjects, but various forms of Fantasy have always been the closest to her heart. This includes Fairy Tales, Myths, and New Age Art.
All of Nature is alive to Judy, and she trys to show this in her paintings. She loves the Greek and Roman Myths in which they personify Spirits of Nature, and also enjoys painting Deities of Trees, Water, Earth, Air, Gods and Goddesses, etc.
Judy has taught Art, Modern Dance and Classical Ballet, and Drama to adults and children and also created a Community Theater Group, presenting classical literature, including Fairy Tales and Shakespeare, on stage. At this time she has decided not to teach anymore, and to devote herself solely to her Art Work.
Judy's art has been licensed in many fields, such as for prints and posters, wall coverings, puzzles, calendars, greeting cards, and embroidery kits, etc. I’ve illustrated several children’s books, including “Antique Fairy Tales”, “The Sandman and Other Sleepy Time Rhymes”, “Tales of Shakespeare”, and “Pollyanna”. She both wrote and illustrated her book “What Do Bunnies Do All Day?”, published by Ideals. Currently Judy is writing and illustrating several new books on Fairies, Elves, Angels, etc.
Judy daydreams about her paintings for a while before putting them on canvas. This preliminary technique of “Mind Painting” helps her to develop an imaginative Work of Art.
