Judy Joel lives in the fishing village of Mousehole, in Cornwall, and is a self taught artist. Her love of life is charmingly and naively portrayed in her delightful paintings. She says this stems from her bright and happy childhood, and her love of people.

Judy started to paint purely for amusement when she left a career in the BBC for the joys of motherhood and now her paintings are in collections all over the world.

Always in her paintings you will find the white haired figure of her Mother with a dog.
