Judy Phearson has been a resident of Klamath Falls, Oregon since 1958. She was born and raised in Boise, Idaho and found a passion for painting much later in life. Judy and husband Howard have owned a prosperous business in Klamath Falls for over 40 years and have three grown children.
In 1976, Judy began painting after her husband purchased a set of oil paints for her birthday. Judy immediately enrolled in art classes and enthusiastically learned from many renowned artists such as; Robert Bateman, Jessica Zemsky, Jack Hines, Veryl Goodnight to name a few. Three years later, Howard took 11 of Judy’s paintings to Gene Favell, the owner and founder of the Favell Museum, for his expert opinion. Mr. Favell instantly purchased all her paintings which immediately launched Judy’s 35 year career as an artist. It has been an experience of a lifetime for Judy, learning valuable lessons in art, while traveling and selling her paintings across the country.
A selection of awards, publications and distinctions for Judy include: 1999, Top 100- National Arts for the Parks; 1995, Featured Artist, Pacific Flyaway Show; and 1988-89 and 1990-91 Ducks Unlimited Artist of the Year.
