Meet Watercolorist Judy Saltzman, NWS, ASMA

Judy Saltzman's vibrant and complex watercolor paintings live up to the description "award-winning" have won 30 in the last 3 years. Style and technique are two important components to an artist.  She melds realism and impressionism style with shapes to create visual intricacy while adding layers of color for harmony.  


Judy has sailed most of her life from cruising, racing, US Sailing Instructor to Director of youth sailing.   This adventurous spirit gives her freedom in choice of highly saturated poured colors, variety of subject matter and strong visual impact to evoke an emotion and get movement into the paintings.     


Featured in the International Magazine The Art of Watercolour,  National  Magazine Watercolor Artist  and "North Light Book-Splash 19 ".  Judy is a Signature Member of the National Watercolor Society (NWS), American Society of Marine Artists (ASMA) and has exhibited in the American Watercolor Society (AWS), National Watercolor Society (NWS), Transparent Watercolor Society (TWSA), Southern Watercolor Society (SW), Florida Watercolor Society and the Willis Smith Gallery at Ringling College of Art & Design. Currently she serves as a Director on the National Watercolor Society.   An artist's style can be as unique as her signature which is true of Saltzman's paintings.
