Wesleyan artists are a group of senior citizens, over the age of 75, who live at the Wesleyan Independent Living. There, they share an art studio where they work on their artistic skills through classes and workshops and create their art pieces. They organize regular exhibits for Wesleyan facilities. Art provides for them a unique form of communication and personal growth.

Each artist brings a different background to his/her art. Among their ranks are a professional artist, former art teachers, many who have developed their artistic skill under a variety of art mentors and a few who are finding their artistic expression for the first time.

Judy works with acrylics and collages. She regularly exhibits her art at the Wesleyan and at St. Andrew Episcopal Church. Prior to retirement, Judy was a school administrator.
