Jud Keresztesi is a Melbourne artist who was drawn to painting at an early age. She continued this passion by studying art and design at Swinburne Technology and interior design at RMIT and has now been professionally painting for 20 years. Keresztesi has developed her signature beach-like scenes through her textural palette knife work with brooding brush-work skies and glittering gold strokes made with bronze powder.
Keresztesi’s inspiration comes from varying sources such as natural phenomena, bushland and the love for water: in particular oceans and lagoons. Jud’s paintings represent the emotions evoked by such watery landscapes rather than attempting to recreate an exact location.
