Judith Schuppien is the featured artist for February at Roux and Cyr International Fine Art Gallery, 48 Free Street in Portland.
Judith grew up “way Downeast,” in Milbridge, a small coastal town in Washington County. She won a scholarship to the University of Chicago, where she earned a BFA, and later an MBA. Her loose, expressive oil paintings, often bold and colorful, present familiar subjects in a fresh and interesting way. In her travels, she keeps an eye out for the occasional odd juxtaposition, an unusual point of view, and always, an emotional connection.
Late this spring, Judith will be relocating from Pittston, Maine, to the Harding Road in Brunswick, where she plans to have her new home studio open by mid-summer.
