The high-spirited daughter of a classical violinist, Judith Bledsoe grew up in California brimming with ideas. From her earliest days, Bledsoe was a seeker, yearning to live intensely in a suitable environment for a burgeoning creative soul. "I had no choice but to become an artist. I always drew and painted, and also wrote as a child. I made mythological things, stories, some atavistic things and strange faces." Like many gifted and restless spirits, Bledsoe fled to Europe at 16, craving experience and artistic freedom. While lesser spirits may have been daunted by such a bold leap, Bledsoe was enthralled with the beauty of the art all around her. In Paris, she was able to absorb, adapt, and ultimately create her own joyous vision of life. For Judith Bledsoe, everything around her has a story to tell. This depth of feeling and sensitivity permeates all of her work, whether the subject is the joys of human friendship or the persistent bonds of memory. Works by the artist transcend our traditional notions of daily living--they offer hope, spontaneity and limitless potential. Judith Bledsoe's works are to be lived with, reflected upon, and cherished.
