"The magnolia flower, often seen in the south, symbolizes beauty, sweetness and femininity," says Judy Mackey. She used her palette knife to give texture to the subtle whites of the petals. I wanted to paint just the flower zoomed close up to give this painting an abstract feel."

Getting to Know Judy

Originally from Japan, Judy Mackey embarked upon her professional artistic career over a decade ago after connecting with a local artist. He taught her how to skillfully wield a palette knife instead of a paintbrush, which gave rise to her own stylistic development. Judy uses this technique to create heavy texture. Her medium of choice is oil paint, with which she enjoys mixing and creating new colors with limited pigments. Her work glows with sweet simplicity in a painterly, impressionistic style.
