Judith Carducci

Two in, Two out” © Judith Carducci
Name: Judith Carducci, PSA
Bio: Judith Carducci retired as a social worker and then resumed the interest in drawing and painting that she had since childhood. She studied watercolour with Mel Chevers and oil painting with C.A. Brodeur until she was in her mid-20s, and later studied with Daniel E. Greene and other nationally known artists. She quickly established herself as  one of today’s best portrait painters. Her paintings have won Best of Show, Award of Excellence, First Place, Award of Merit, and purchase awards at international and national shows and competitions.
As well as being an internationally recognised portrait painter, Judith teaches workshops in portraiture, pastel, plein air landscape, anatomy for portraitists and still life by invitation. Judith reminisces about her own experience as a student: “When I was a child, my art teacher had me copy 'Holbein Heads' - drawings by the great Hans Holbein, portraitist to the court of England's King Henry VIII. That was the beginning of my lifelong fascination with portraiture and my enduring respect for Holbein's genius. Even now, my teacher's voice, as she showed me the fine points of his skill, echoes in my ear: 'Look for the lost and found!'"
In addition to Who's Who in American Art, Judith Carducci is listed in Who's Who in America, Who's Who of American Women, Who's Who in the World and "Outstanding People of the 20th [& 21st] Century" (International Biographical Centre, Cambridge, England)
Her work has been shown in The National Arts Club and the Salmagundi Club, the Cahoon Museum of American Art, and the Butler Institute of American Art. She has been featured in International Artist, Pastel Artist International, American Artist, The Pastel Journal, The Artist's Magazine, and the books, Best of Portrait Painting and Best of Pastel (North Light Books), 100 Ways to Paint People (International Artist), and Portrait Highlights (American Artist). Her work is in collections in the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico, Israel, Europe and South Africa.
Judith is a member of the Portrait Society of America (board & faculty), Pastel Society of America (signature member), Degas Pastel Society, American Artists Professional League, International Association of Pastel Societies, Cincinnati Art Club, Salmagundi Club, Akron Society of Artists and Hudson Society of Artists.
