Judy Grochowski is a graduate of UW-Whitewater (with strong connections to the Art Department). She worked as an art teacher for many years. Although she spoke of her passion for teaching young ones art during her time as a teacher, she spoke of her excitement to be able to make more of her own art during her retirement and her love for the WPA. When asked about her work, Judy quotes: “My work is a mix. I work from photos I have taken or go out to paint plein air. Plein air is painting outdoors, on site and working in a quick fashion to capture the scene before the light changes. It’s a wonderful challenge and I’m just beginning to feel completely satisfied with my painting on site…” Judy even has a set-up in her car so that she can leave on a moment’s notice to go paint. Her dedication and love for what she does truly shines through in her work.
