Artist Statement

Judy Nemer Sklar is a professional artist residing in Palm Desert, California. She received her B.A from Chapman University, Orange, California and her M.A. from California State University Dominguez Hills. Along the way she has been a proud recipient of grants and scholarships, has shown her work in numerous galleries, won regional and national juried art awards, and has been showcased in magazines and brochures.

She paints with bold, bright watercolors on heavy paper and canvas and often incorporates pen and ink, crayons and colored pencils; inspired by fleeting images, fabrics, conversations, a poem or a song.

Currently she is in the process of writing a blog and book entitled "Artists Narratives" incorporating current research in creative aging along with interviews with mid-life successful artists. "Artists Narratives" explores the approaches various artists employ when traversing aging and life's transitions while they continue to create, push boundaries and plan future projects.

"Like an explosion of stars across the sky, like splattered paint, I keep moving, expanding, leaning into the creative process. I hope to excite, inspire, create and learn; to dazzle with color, smile at whimsy and always fall head over heels in love with art". Judy Nemer Sklar@2018
