Born in Yorkshire, Judith Cain studied Painting at Leeds College of Art and Goldsmith's College London. She now lives and works in Leeds as a Lecturer in Fine Art. Judith's paintings focus on the relationship between man and the landscape and the way aspects of the landscape can be seen and interpreted metaphorically. Ethnological collections and travel particularly to places with a deep-rooted sense of history are important in the development of her ideas and colour is also of crucial significance. Source material and influences are diverse making reference to elements of nature landscape plants and gardens. Judith says; 'In my paintings I endeavour to provoke a sense of mystery in the viewer and trigger some feelings of the poignancy of the subject'. Judith has exhibited extensively in the UK and has an impressive collection of awards to her name including the Liang (Regional and National) Harewood Award AHRB Award and the Arts Council Award.
