Maybe it’s my perception of control, or lack thereof, that compels me to draw upon unusual weather and extreme natural phenomena as my focus.

Artist Statement

My landscapes are an exploration of the sublime through the mediums of ink, pastel and charcoal. The works are an amalgamation of representational and abstract elements, as I delve into the realm of the natural world. I use line work and texture to creates a sense of movement and fluidity, as if the landscape is in a state of constant change, evoking a sense of the dynamism of nature. My compositions are carefully crafted to create a sense of depth and layering, inviting the viewer to engage with the work on a visceral level. The work is a reflection of the interconnectedness of all things, and a reminder of the cyclical nature of life, inviting the viewer to contemplate their place within the natural world.


Judith Maureen Brandon was born in Indianapolis, IN in 1963.

She has been awarded numerous Best in Shows across the country for her large dynamic drawings as well two Ohio Arts Council Grants. She was included three times in the highly competitive National Weather Biennale international juried exhibition and is represented by Kenneth Paul Lesko Gallery.

“Upon meeting Judith Brandon you wouldn’t imagine her to be the artist behind the large dynamic works on paper she creates. Standing at just five feet she has to be extremely inventive at how she manipulates the materials in her studio. Her large physical gestures and tiny precise lines create a unique rich experience for the viewer”
