About the Artist :: Judith Schuppien

View this artist’s oils »

Judith Schuppien attended public schools in Milbridge, a small coastal town in Washington County, Maine. She won a scholarship to the University of Chicago, where she earned a BFA and MFA.

She paints mainly in oils, but has also worked in pastels. Her loose, expressive style, often bold and colorful, presents familiar subjects in a fresh and interesting way. In her travels, she keeps an eye out for the occasional odd juxtaposition, an unusual point of view, and always, an emotional connection.

After growing up along coastal Maine, in a lobster and fishing family, Judith draws inspiration from images reminiscent of her childhood. Working both as an “plein air” and studio artist.  Recently, much of Judith’s work is focused on the working harbors of the Maine Coast, and the time-worn downtown’s that follow Maine’s rivers.
