Born in Saint John, New Brunswick, Judith Baxter studied art at Vocational School with Ted Campbell and Fred Ross. However it has been far too long since school-days to blame or credit my teachers with my artistic results. “Basically self taught and by intuition I’ve even had to ask how best to clean my brushes!”
Judith is recognized both provincially and nationally as a museum and built heritage advocate and local sage on community heritage issues. As an artist/writer she is recognized for four books; ‘The Magic Seagull’ with Roberta Lee (illustration), ‘845 A Pencil Sketch Tour of the Kingston Peninsula’ (which captures the elegance and winsomeness of old barns and house in rural NB), ‘Life & Times of Eliza Cox Carter’ with Beth Quigley and editing ‘Clifton Royal: The Wetmores and Village Life in Nineteenth-Century New Brunswick’.
The artist’s work has been collected and exhibited both privately and publicly.
Over the last few years Judith has been inspired to turn her attention to painting natural landscapes with a focus on water, rocks and sky. Working in oil, the new work is rich in detail, movement, and is imbued with a deep sense of place.
