I’m excited to offer my first post on figurative art. Judy Onofrio has to top my list of figurative artists that continue to amaze and inspire me.

acrobatic_feat_smI have been a follower of Judy Onofrio for years. I love her humor and her ability to create such joyful mix media sculptures.

She carves many of her objects from basswood. She often uses vintage found object such as buttons, costume jewelry, ceramic objects and more. Her pieces require more than the passing glance. I hope someday to be able to view her work in person.  If you want to spend some time making yourself smile, see more of Judy’s work on her website.

This is a fabulous pieces from  years ago that you probably  won’t find on her website. It  was one of the first works I  saw by Judy and I was  hooked.

Artists statement “I consider myself extremely lucky. Every day, I have the opportunity to construct a world of memory, humor and stories through my work in the studio. Best of all, I live in that world and invite others in. There is nothing I would rather do and no place I would rather be. My life and art are best when on a continuous roll, including everything I desire—love, happiness, good friends, success, and a working concrete mixer.”
