Judeth Van Hamm
Judeth Van Hamm creates “watercolors of things I see.” Frequent themes include flowers and their backgrounds, scenes along the water, and views from doors and windows. At one time, she painted scenes in Boston’s subways. She enjoys being asked to create portraits of people, in pencil, and houses, in pen and ink or watercolor. Her portraits of people are done from life and from photographs. She has also made portraits of animals in pencil and watercolor. In addition to originals, her work is available as prints and notecards.
Judeth Van Hamm’s family encouraged her early interest in drawing and painting and shared their appreciation of the work of her grandfather’s great-uncle, 19th century Canadian painter Cornelius Krieghoff. Her art education has included learning about watercolors and perspective while studying architecture at the University of Michigan and studying watercolors with Murray Wentworth at the Art Institute of Boston. Her work in portraits has benefited from participating in life drawing classes in Philadelphia, Boston and Hull and studying with the late Robert Cormier, president of Boston’s Copley Society. She enjoys the opportunity to get to know each person she draws.
