“Shortly after I saw Cirque du Soleil for the first time I began my “Cirque” series. The color, movement, light and energy of the performance is what I have attempted to capture. I hope I also have captured the power and drama of a Cirque du Soleil performance. My early paintings were very realistic, small still life paintings in fine detail. Painting then took a backseat to family and career. After working as a college administrator and then as a graphic artist, I decided to take up my brushes again. I have been painting non-representational abstract paintings for over fifteen years. I have had the good fortune to study with Deanna Schwartzberg and internationally known artist Rob VanderZee.” – Judy Giuliani
