Hi, my name is Judi LeBlanc I am an Artist and Illustrator from UK.   I studied painting at the Art Academy, Southwark, London and Wimbledon College of Art, London.  Further studies at Princes Trust, Kensington Palace, (Andy Pankhurst), and Norfolk Painting School (Martin Kinnear).   I work in Oil, Acrylic, Watercolor, Digital and Pastel.  Despite dabbling some 30 years or so, my style continues to evolve as I strive to capture the beauty in the scenery around me whilst experimenting with direct vs indirect.   Many influences, including:  Sorolla, Winslow Homer, Sargent, Whistler, Turner & Cezanne amongst others....   

Always inspired by the colorful tropics, and after many happy years living in the Cayman Islands, also Bermuda and the Bahamas, I finally arrived in Florida March 2020; the enthusiasm and friendliness of the people I've met has been as inspiring as the views.  Living in the Islands the clear turquoise water and soft sand beaches were a joy to paint, here the scenery in Florida, whether beach views or inland, are plentiful and include some uniquely Floridian aspects like the alligator parks, quaint Key West homes, Sand dunes dotted with sea oats, busy Marinas and, on occasion, the Atlantic's wild surf following a storm.  

Currently my artwork can be found in Bridge Road Fine Arts, at 8887 Bridge Road, Hobe Sound, Florida as well as the Design Studio, Camana Bay, Grand Cayman.
