Judith Tummino has often stated that her first year of study in Italy was a life changing event.
“I fell in love with the light, the art, the people.”
She felt so strongly that she returned to Umbria about 9 times in 8 years.

“Studying with teaching artists such as Lennart Anderson, Israel Hershberg, Nick Carone,
Dan Gustin and William Bailey contributed to my knowledge of art and the formation of what and how I wanted to paint.”

Born in Washington D. C. and raised in Maryland, Judith received exposure to the many art museums and galleries. Travels to the Chesapeake Bay and the Shenandoah Valley instilled the love of the landscape as well as the sense of the untouched beauty of the land.

“My appreciation of the moment is central to my work. I find that as my painting evolves I become sensitive to both the change of the conditions I am painting as well as to the changes on my pallette and painting surface. It is this transformation that keeps me coming back to the painted experience. It never loses its interest for me”.

Judith has exhibited widely in the United States as well as in Italy. Her first experience showing in New York came when she was accepted into a show juried by Phillip Pearlstein. She showed her work in the Chelsea district of New York for about four years. During that time she painted at the Chesapeake Bay in addition to many places in Michigan that she now called home.

Her work is included in the collections of the Kalamazoo Institute of Art, Grand Valley State University, the Dennos Museum Center, and in Chestnut Cabin and Museum of Port Republic Maryland.
