Judy Alonso is an artist residing in League City, Texas. Her first paintings were done in oil in 1975 in a leisure class. These were few in number and all given away to friends. Judy put down her brushes while raising her family and pursuing a thirty year career with the US postal service. Thirty-eight years later, she picked up the brushes again and has been painting ever since. Her medium is acrylic and oil. While Judy considers herself basically self-taught, she has recently taken classes and workshops from several excellent local artists. These artists include Juliette Lockwood, Marla Hoppenstedt, Libby Johnson, Elayne Kuehler, and Michelle Conques. She also considers herself very fortunate to be surrounded by talented artists who are constant sources of critiquing and encouragement. Although Judy enjoys painting all subjects, she has found her niche and passion in painting pet portraits.
She is a member of River Region Art Association and Associated
Women in the Arts and Galveston Art League. Her art can be seen at Biletnikoff Gallery and The Gallery Downtown in Baton Rouge, Louisiana; The Galveston Art League Gallery and Affaire d'Art Fine Art Gallery in Galveston, Texas; and her website judyalonso.com. She has also been selected for exhibits at Circa 1857 Gallery, Elizabethan Gallery, Brush with Burden, Treasures of Pointe Coupee and Baton Rouge Art League at the Rural Life Museum.
