"Many times over the years I've been told I should focus on just one single form of art, but I've always
known my strength and energy lies in just the opposite. I truly love being involved in the creation of a variety
of concepts and to me that makes life full, challenging and extremely exciting." -Judy Phipps

Judy was born and raised in the Willamette Valley of Oregon and was lucky enough to grow up in environs where
people were totally what they appeared to be. The Oregon fishermen, the Washington loggers, these were her
family, filled with laughter, warmth and well being. While living in Alaska several years, the elderly
pioneers and Eskimos became her friends, genuine, loving, with no pretenses. Still, to this day,
that is what she seeks out in life, in friendships or in her studio where this authenticity radiates through all of her artwork..

Judy Phipps has showcased numerous art exhibits and has accumulated
many awards throughout the country. She currently shows at:



Portland Art Museum Sales Gallery

Portland, Oregon


River Gallery

Independence, Oregon


Valley Bronze Gallery
