Special interest in plein air painting takes Jude to Monhegan Island, and is fortified by frequently sailing along the Maine coast & trips to Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and the Pacific Northwest.

Jude’s roots go back to her great-grandparents by the name of O’Cassidy of county Fermanaugh, Ireland

along the coast of Galway Bay. Her early years were spent visiting her grandfather Creighton Cassidy and his son Ira Cassidy.

Jude is a listed artist with Art Price of London, England.

Artist statement: “Art has to be felt to be understood…  A braille for the soul”.
