Judith Cunningham's paintings are rich with traditional Chinese style and symbolism. Her mastery had inauspicious beginnings as she explains: "My interest began at the YMCA, where a painting class was offered as well as free babysitting." That YMCA class was the springboard to her 12-year course of study with Master Painter Shiou-jang Hsieh.
Today her paintings hang at the Upstairs Art Gallery in Healdsburg, where they provide visitors a rare opportunity to see and learn about the intricacies of traditional-style Chinese brush paintings.
