Judith TUTIN

Judith TUTIN
1979

Born in Wexford, Ireland, where she went to school. Judith then began a science degree at University College Dublin before switching to art college. Completed a BA in Art and Design Education at the National College of Art and Design  in 2003, with painting as a chosen studio practice.

Moving to London in 2003, she worked as an artist and secondary school teacher. In 2004 Judith practised as a painter at Euroart Studios, then worked briefly at Central St Martins College and Windsor Arts Centre before spending the next six years at The Holy Family Technology College. She completed an MA in Art and Design in Education in 2007 at the Institute of Education, University of London.

Strongly influenced by abstract impressionism, especially Rothko and the idea of colour field painting as a spiritual experience. A seasoned traveller in Italy, she has been influenced by its religious painting and the richness of its Catholic heritage. Is a practising Catholic and has undertaken many commissions for religious purposes.

She had no connections with Cornwall when she and her husband decided to move to the county in 2010, but found it a 'home from home' with its similarity to South East Ireland. The coastal landscape of Cornwall, the Celtic history and the vibrant art scene have made Judith feel very settled here.
