Using textile techniques of layered fabrics and hand embroidery, Judy Wilford works in a realistic, impressionistic manner gaining inspiration from the landscapes of regions I have lived in and visited. She references the natural world in its many and varied aspects from the wide scale to the intimacy of the habitats of birds and small animals to the minute patterns and textures of nature. Bird Count – The Shearwater Migration follows the migration of the Streaked Shearwater from Asia through the West Pacific to Northern and North Western Australia.
Judy has written two books, the first Embroidered Landscape published with Sally Milner Publishing and the second Birds and Habitat is in the hands of Search Press and due in April 2021.
