Judith A Livingston
Judith studied 3D Design with Fine Art in Newcastle in the early 70’s; her main area of study was furniture design, complemented by textiles and pottery. She then did a post graduate degree in Fine Art (History of Art), at the University of Glasgow and wrote her dissertation on the work of Gimson and the Barnsleys, second generation Arts and Crafts architects and designers. This was followed by a PGCE teaching degree at the University of Newcastle.
That was a long time ago! She has subsequently had a varied career, sometimes teaching Design, Craft and Technology and Art, firstly in London then at various places in Scotland. She has also had a career as a Furniture restorer/conservator and has designed and made furniture, most notably for Magdalen College, Cambridge.
Now, retired from both teaching and furniture restoration, she is committed fully to developing her artwork, by both loosening up her drawing and painting style, and becoming rather obsessive about etching. She has lived in the Highlands for the last twenty years.
