About the Artist
Born in Louisiana, Judy Mooney’s life and work is a rich gumbo of experiences spiced with her admiration of all people and the love of sculpting.
At the end of her career as vice president for community development with the YMCA, Judy returned to the university to study art, began sculpting and found a latent artist within herself. She also found people with stories to tell within the clay in her hands.
Today Judy is a studio artist in Savannah, GA. She works in ceramics and bronze. Her work can be seen in shows throughout the low country, at her website and at Friedman’s Fine Arts in Savannah, GA , Four Corners Gallery and Framing in Bluffton, S.C. and at The Atelier Gallery in Charleston, S.C.
Judy’s work is realistic figurative sculpture inspired by the people she portrays and their stories.
Before touching the clay Judy researches the lives of the person she’s sculpting to ensure that it conveys an authentic message. As the figure emerges from the clay she focuses on expression and movement to capture their full essence. During the process the figure and Judy, the sculptor, begin a dialogue that defines the narrative until they agree that the piece has a voice of it’s own. Judy’s hope is that each sculpture gives new insight or joy at remembering an old familiar story or learning a new one.
