Judy Kalin was born in Seattle, Washington in 1945, and resides today in Moses Lake, Washington with her husband.
Judy has been accepted into several juried shows including Northwest Watercolor Society (Bellevue Art Museum), Western Washington State Fair, and the Puget Sound Area Exhibition (Frye Art Museum) in Seattle. She is an active current member of Puget Sound Sumi Association since 2005 and Women Painters of Washington since 2013.
Sumi (ink painting) has been her primary medium and has found this medium to be inspiring. Judy has a tendency to paint more contemporary, or western style Sumi. She also works in other mediums, such as cold wax and oils, watercolor, and acrylics. Her love for creativity is always an adventure in trying new mediums
