Judith Lewis is an oil painter living in Indianapolis, Indiana. In 1996, Judith chose to revitalize her interest in painting by taking a portrait workshop at the Indianapolis Art Center. The following year she traveled to New Mexico to study with Master Artist, David Leffel. She was so taken by the dramatic effects of light and shadow in his paintings that she knew this would be the path she would take on her life-long pursuit.
After fine arts became her major focus, Judith began showing her work in juried exhibitions, winning many awards. In 2008, she was honored to receive the Master of Art Award at the Hoosier Salon ceremony in New Harmony. In 2010, she was awarded the prestigious IHA Silver Award. Her work appears in Mark Butterfield’s book, Hoosier Painters of the 21st Century. Judith is also named in Who’s Who in American Women, and Who’s Who in America.
Ms. Lewis has studied with Master Artists at the Indianapolis Art Center, Scottsdale Artist School (Arizona), and Fechin Institute (New Mexico). She has also studied abroad in Italy and Spain.
In addition to one-woman shows, Judith’s work has appeared in several group shows. Many of her works are held in private and public collections.
