About Judith Logan

Judith Logan

Hi, I`m Judith Logan and I love to paint, draw, print, and even stitch, and sometimes all together! Art makes me tick and I love it when my work makes a connection with others.

I have always created, made things. As a small child, I remember that my poor mum got so fed up having to scrub my doodles off the living room walls, that in the end she gave up and set aside a corner just for me!! At school, my main loves were art and languages and I could never really decide between the two. So, even after completing a Foundation Studies Diploma in Art & Design at Belfast Art College with a Commendation in 1995, I swapped a degree in Fine Art for one in French and Spanish, went to Chile in 1999 for work, where I met my husband, and ended up living there for nearly a decade. My eldest child was born prematurely, and when he was just under a year old, I decided to go back to art and see what would happen. Life had taught me that I would rather cross that line than stare at it forever wondering what if?

Now back in Northern Ireland, I try to combine my creative output with the demands of bringing up a young family, and having artwork in several galleries. I am blessed to have been able to convert an old dilapidated barn in my yard into a working studio with my own wee gallery space underneath. I have christened it The Black Sheep.

This year I was chuffed to add the Sunday Times Watercolour Competition to my portfolio, which also includes exhibitions with the Royal Ulster Academy and the Royal Watercolour Society. I am a Silver status member of the United Kingdom Coloured Pencil Society and an Associate member of The Ulster Society of Women Artists.

While I wish my hands could keep up with my head, it rarely happens. Often, I`ll rework a similar theme in different media, trying to exploit the qualities specific to each one. More than once I`ve ended up binning something that took me hours to do, but usually with a sense of relief. Mistakes are inevitable and all part of the learning process, and something I try to embrace in my practice. If something doesn`t work out, I might keep a part of it or cut it up for use as collage or a stencil to use at a later date. Ironically, some of the new pieces that resulted from those failures, are actually some of my favourite works to date.

My preferred current media are watercolours and acrylics, with a growing interest in printmaking.
