Judy Buxton was born in 1961 in Sydney, Australia. She moved to England in her early twenties and, following a period working in London, studied Fine Art Painting at Falmouth College of Art, continuing her post graduate studies at the Royal Academy School in London. Judy has received many awards, including the First Prize, Gold Medal, The Worshipful Company of Painter-Stainers in 1996 and the Freedom of the City of London in 1997. She was a NatWest Finalist and Prize Winner in 1997 and The Hunting Art Prize Second Prize Winner in 2005. Judy moved to Cornwall in 1987 with her husband, the artist Jeremy Annear. Her work has been exhibited in solo shows throughout the UK and can be found in many private, public and corporate collections both in the UK and worldwide.

‘Judy Buxton’s hard-won gift is for somehow imbuing the paint and the landscapes that emerge from within in, not so much with the physical ‘look’ of the place but, rather, the sensuous characteristics of it. The wind in our face, the soft bogginess of the moorland turf under our feet, the sound of water tumbling down the mountainsides, the sheer exhilaration of wild places: these are the kind of sensations we intuitively feel in the face of these paintings, the sheer ‘wideness of the world’.
