The prolific painter plays with feminine colors and big, bold patterns in her work and her wardrobe.
When I’m creating, I tend to wear... the color palettes that I am thinking about. The things I wear to the studio are things I don’t mind getting paint on, but if I’m thinking about making a painting that is, say, pink and orange, I might wear a pink shirt on top of an orange long-sleeved shirt. I’m deep in that land of color combinations.
Something extra special in my closet is... a sequined Dries Van Noten coat. It’s a work of art. I wear it all the time, and every time, people will say, ‘Oh, there’s Judy in that coat again.’ I don’t care because it is an object that feels extraordinary.
In Chicago, I shop at... Juju’s Vintage. I am a little bit afraid to say it out loud because it’s so amazing, everyone might go and pick them clean. But it’s a taxonomy of accessories. If you wanted a rhinestone flower brooch but it needed to be pink, there’s probably a drawer for that.
