I want my patrons to enjoy seeing my art just as much as I enjoy making it.

Having spent my early years entertaining guests in the lobby of my parents’ motel, I learned early on how much fun it can be to put a smile on someone’s face. Thus the inspiration for my whimsical works was born! After exploring many different forms of art, I have Judi Mitchellfound my ultimate love in ceramics, particularly Raku, which gives my pieces the rich colors and organic elements essential to clay creatures. I find my muse in those random pieces of wood or metal that manage to become the legs, trunks, or tusks of my ceramic animals. These critters have managed to make their way into galleries throughout the nation and internationally. (From http://artbyjudi.com/about_me/)
