Judy Arsenault


Judy Arsenault is a visual artist best known for her encaustic and acrylic paintings depicting abstract interpretations of her rural landscape. She draws her inspiration from the daily observation of the powerful Fundy tides at the banks of the Shubenacadie river: the change of the seasons and the cycles and rhythms of the land. While her subject matter is driven by these forces of nature, her materials and treatment are also appropriately organic; sensuous curves and layering, gouging, melting, and polishing, often incorporating local beeswax and Fundy sand, as well as other collage elements into her works.

After a foundation year of Fine Art studies at Mount Allison University in Sackville N.B., she continued her studies at the Nova Scotia College of Art & Design, graduating in 1980 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. She has given various workshops in encaustic, acrylic and watercolour painting, and drawing.

Arsenault’s work is in many private and public collections, including the Municipality of the County of Colchester, the Alzheimer Society of Nova Scotia and the Nova Scotia Art Bank. Judy's paintings are featured in the publication Nova Scotia's Contemporary Artists Volume 2, edited and published by Dee Appleby.
