Judith Schuppien
“The Working Coast”

With a focus on the working waterfront along Maine’s Down East coast, Judith’s work reveals a bold, loose and expressive style on familiar subjects in a fresh and interesting way. Raised in Washington County, Judith comes from a family involved in the resource-based economy of Down East Maine. Most family members have worked as lobster men, fishermen and clam diggers. Her paintings draw her to the working waterfront and rekindles family ties. It is her passion to portray this feeling through the composition of her paintings, bringing forth a bold presence and impact. Judith works as both “plein air” and studio artist, reveling in the familiarity of her environment.
