Judy Hilgemann

Last year I moved to Campbell River with my family, after many wonderful and creative years on Haida Gwaii. I am now exploring the opportunities for art on Vancouver Island. My education includes; Graphic Design in Nelson, Illustration at Nova Scotia College of Art & Design in Halifax, a Bachelor of Education from the University of Victoria, and various painting workshops over the years. 

I am an active member of the Federation of Canadian Artists and the Island Illustrators’ Society. My first illustrated children’s book, “B is for Basketball”, was published by McKellar& Martin of Vancouver, in the spring of 2011 and has since been used as a “Welcome To Kindergarten” book across Canada. Other recent commissions have been for north coast school districts and U.N.B.C. in Prince George, creating books, posters, lesson aids, and other literacy projects.

I am enjoying the opportunity to paint every day, for the first time in my adult life. Right now I am painting landscapes and images of west coast life. I also do portraits, still life, and figurative work. I prefer to create small plein-air watercolour studies and sketches in nature, and then to re-create them as larger acrylic or encaustic paintings in my home studio.
