About Judith Levins:
Cazenovia NY based watercolor artist, Judith Haynes Levins, has been painting her world for several years. Judy paints in a bold energetic manner. Her connection to nature has taken Judy outside to paint landscapes en plein air locally as well as in the Adirondacks of Upstate NY. "There is something about being out in this beautiful world capturing a moment, a sunrise or a brilliant blue sky and sharing the feeling through my artwork that brings me great joy" says the artist.
Judy is an award winning watercolor artist that teaches private watercolor lessons in her home studio as well as traveling to teach watercolor workshops. She is a popular instructor who’s enthusiasm for the medium is contagious. Judy has exhibited her work nationally in juried shows and numerous galleries. She sells her work from her studio as well as online.
During Judy’s art career she has participated in consecutive open studio tours and was a founding member of a regional art group Cactoctin Holiday Art Tour, which has become an important cultural contribution to the community.
She has served two terms as President of the Cazenovia Watercolor Society. When not serving her fellow artists, Judy stays busy painting weekly in the Adirondacks with the plein air group Mountain Air Painters as well as The Cazenovia Area Painters. Judy has been a member of Central New York Watercolor Society since 2016 where she holds Gold Medallion signature status as well as filling a chair on the Board of Directors.
