Judy Belasco grew up surrounded by artists and art. She is the granddaughter of Roy C. Nuse, a Pennsylvania impressionist and daughter of modernist, Oliver Nuse. She equates that lineage with forming her love of creating art and exploring Nature. She won a scholarship to Philadelphia College of Art where she studied painting and photography, and received a BFA in 1972. Later in Maine she studied digital photography with John Paul Caponigro and painting with Linden Frederick.
Judy taught art at Germantown Friends School for 32 years and then retired to focus full-time on painting. She maintains studios in Stockton Springs and Philadelphia. Her work is included in Art of Acadia by Carl and David Little (Down East Books, 2016). She is represented in Maine at the Courthouse Gallery, in Ellsworth and in Philadelphia at the F. A. N. Gallery. You can view her work at Courthousegallery.com.
“I love being out there in nature with the sky, the tides, the wind, the trees and the ever present, unfolding Beauty.”Judy Belasco
