Judy Doherty is an American-born artist based in Castro Valley, California. 

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

Judy began her art career working alongside her mom carving wood for prints, painting, sculpting, and making collages. She attended the Culinary Institute of America and became a pastry chef before launching a graphic design and commercial photography company.

She completed a Post Baccalaureate Certificate in Visual Art and Graphic Design at UC Berkeley Extension in 2016. She is now studying sustainability as an MPS candidate at the CIA.
