Artist Spotlight: Judy Peknik


We are happy to spotlight the work of Judy Peknik

“I have returned to art after a long absence due to career & family involvement. Ever since I was a child, I have found my way by drawing. My formal training started in college where I majored in studio art. After graduation I attended the New York School of Interior Design & worked in the design field for many years. Upon moving to Stamford, CT I embarked on a career at the University of Connecticut MBA Program. When I retired, I enrolled in classes at the Silvermine School of Art and the Rowayton Arts Center.” said Judy
