Judith Levin (born 1956) is an internationally collected autodidactic still life and landscape artist. Her early work is comprised of a series of still lifes using a technique of pure painting, freely building a classical composition directly onto the canvas in paint without the use of drawn or planned outlines. These paintings are noted for their contrast of texture and the play of light and colour. Early flower paintings are published by Solomon and Whitehead, London.
In the continuing series of still life paintings, the same freedom of technique is given into an expression of simplicity of form. These are contemplative, silent paintings taken from direct observation. Examples of this period are published by Canadian Art Prints, Richmond, Canada.
Moving to the pictorial space of the landscape, the moorland paintings are a personal response to the vast, open spaces of heather on the moors around North Yorkshire and the woodland paintings a response to the more enclosed landscape within the city.
Judith Levin is based in Leeds and was nominated for the Women of Achievement Award in 1993. She is patron of the charity Educate the Kids.
