                   Judy Klement

Born on the East Coast, Judy (Aymar) Klement considers California a perfect setting for her home and studio. Fascinated with the beauty of her surroundings, Judy aims to capture them as art in her award winning Impressionistic-Realistic style.

Portraiture is Klement's love. Judy takes candid studio photos in a relaxed setting while getting acquainted with her subjects. She can give you a great 'hair day', change an outfit, and do modifications. Adept at creating paintings of departed relatives, Judy prefers that you honor your loved ones with a portrait while they're still here! It is a most thoughtful and well received gift of love.

Artist Statement
“I enjoy painting people and places by capturing them in soft pastel, oil or mixed mediums. My impressionist-realistic style goes beyond the visual to an essence of being, of place, to share a moment in time preserved as art.”
At exhibitions, it is enlightening to study peoples’ reactions to my work. These observations help me to formulate new series. I seek new venues for this satisfying expression called art.” Judy Klemen
