Judy Keene’s work is informed by the traditions of Painterly Abstraction. Keene was first introduced to Abstraction Expressionism and Color Field Painting as a student of art historian Shirley Blum in California. For ten years she worked in art museums and continued to draw and paint. In the mid 80’s Keene resumed painting full-time.
In addition to painting abstraction, Keene has studied classical realist techniques and Plein Air landscape painting.
