Judy Doherty is an American-born artist based in Castro Valley, California, where she resides with 2 beloved golden doodle dogs. 

Judy’s work explores natural and man-made processes that change the environment both quickly and slowly. She creates photographs, water-based paintings, mixed media prints, and collages. By exploring the concepts of landscape and time, Doherty’s creations establish a link between the landscape’s reality and that imagined by its conceiver. These works focus on concrete questions for our current and future existence.

She completed 2 Post Baccalaureate Certificates in Visual Art and Graphic Design at UC Berkeley Extension in 2016-2020. She graduated with a master’s degree in food business from the Culinary Institute of America in 2021. She has won numerous awards for her art and photography.
