This site is owned by Head Creative Associates and that business is owned by me, Judy Head.
My professional life was centred primarily around marketing and graphic designer, but this site is focused on an entirely different area of creative activity – ink painting and lettering. I was heavily influenced by Chinese and Japanese art from my youth. The sense of space, the energy of the brush marks and the simplicity of the layout are all very different principles to those familiar with the rules and culture of Western art. However, the work of the Japanese artists, calligraphers and woodcut printers heavily influenced the Impressionists of the 19th and 20 century and many artist from all disciplines across the world since then – myself included.
My paintings are executed on Japanese or Chinese papers, some of which are very fine, using traditional black Sumi and coloured mineral inks. I use Japanese brushes to achieve the result and at present tend to limit the amount of colour, preferring to simplicity of the black Sumi ink. The paintings are float mounted – meaning that the artwork rests on top of the board rather than overlapping – surrounded by a mount and natural oak frame. Each is priced individually.
