Judy Klich earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Interior Design from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro in 1990. After 18 years as a commercial designer, Klich decided to pursue her lifelong dream to be creative without parameters and paint bold abstract paintings. She completed a Master of Fine Arts degree at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco in May 2011. Klich is represented by LeQuire and Company in Nashville, Tenn., River Gallery in Chattanooga, Tenn., Shimai Art and Pottery in Nashville, Wall Candy in Columbia, Tenn., and Tennessee Artisan Market at The Renaissance Center in Dickson, Tenn.
Encaustic is Klich’s chosen medium and passion, opening a space for limitless creativity. Its unique physical properties – using a mixture of beeswax, dammar resin and oil paint combined with heat – offer a multi-dimensional, heavily textured surface. Her process combines painting, drawing, collage and photograph transfers creating an unexpected spontaneous flow of energy and endless possibilities.
“Pursuing peace and joy is synonymous with creating expressive works of art. In my art, I search for a calming balance for my ‘busyness.’ Often, a quick glance out the window sparks inspiration, as nature’s changing seasons offer the comforting and predictable cycles of life, death and rebirth.”
