Judy Lalingo

Inspired by nature, Judy Lalingo spends much of her time sketching, painting and photographing everything from horses and hounds to birds and wildlife. Her work ranges from tightly rendered miniatures in acrylic to looser oils of landscapes and animal studies, often painted outdoors in the plein air style. The artist values her experiences in the field immensely and feels that it lends authenticity to her work.

Judy is a Signature Member of the Society of Animal Artists (SAA) and the Miniature Artists of America (MAA). She also retains memberships in the Miniature Art Society of Florida (MASF), the World Federation of Miniaturists (WFMA), and is a Resident Member of the Miniature Painters, Sculptors & Gravers Society of Washington D.C. (MPSGS).

Her formal studies began with the New School of Art in Toronto, a UNESCO project where working professional painters led courses in drawing, anatomy, colour, design and painting. Throughout the years, she has participated in several workshops with notable painters, including wildlife artists Robert Bateman, Matthew Hillier, Greg Beecham, Julie Chapman, Jill Soukup and Carol Lee Thompson.

Originally from Toronto, Canada, she was honoured as Ducks Unlimited Canada's Artist of the Year in 1997. Judy's work has appeared in several books and magazines, including the back cover of Reader's Digest, as well as in various galleries, collections and museums. She resides with her husband in the gently rolling fields of northern Maryland's horse country.
