Judith White was born in Sydney, trained at the National Art School, gained a Bachelor of Arts majoring in Fine Arts through Sydney University, and is a member of the Australian Watercolour Institute. Judith has been a practicing professional for 30 years with 38 solo exhibitions in Australia, and Japan.
Judith began her career working in pure watercolour. The use of collage in the early 1980s was a consequence of her work addressing political issues such as tourism and the environment. Several journeys to the desert regions, in particular the environs of Lake Eyre in the 1990s, revolutionised Judith's painting process to include working in a larger scale on canvas. Her process however, has always relied on the fluid wash and transparency of pure watercolour technique.
Major commissions include, the Olympic Co-ordination Authority, Walker Corporation, Southern Pacific Petroleum/Central Pacific Mineral P.L., JLW Sydney, Attorney General’s Department of NSW, in 2004 Judith was commissioned to complete a major work for the refurbished Hilton Hotel, Sydney, and in 2013 a detail of Judith’s painting “Bush Creek Series: Waterhole” was reproduced on the cover of the 6th edition of Australia’s Macquarie Dictionary.
Judith has won over a dozen major awards including the Mosman Art Prize twice, the Magaret Fesq Memorial Art Prize twice, the Manly Art Prize, The Maitland Art Prize and in 2004 the Fleurieu Peninsula McLaren Vale Prize.
