Glimpses of Spring: Jennifer Judd-McGee

It looks like we're getting another foot of snow here in Boston but I could not care less.. I discovered the newest works of Maine artist Jennifer Judd-McGee (to whom I was first introduced to by Lari Washburn) and they make me feel happy and hopeful... Spring is coming!


If you are in the Northeast, you can see Jennifer's work in the Enormous Tiny Art Show at the Nahcotta Gallery in Porstmouth, NH, from February 3rd through February 28, 2011.  Or you can visit her most inspiring blog Swallowfield, or her Etsy shop here.

Oh, and through her blog, I discovered this amazing organization called Craft Hope . Check them out and maybe you'll want to get involved.. they are another example of people who make huge differences a step at a time. They are currently gathering birthing kits for Haiti (Project 11). 

 I like the quote on their website too: 

"They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself."
— Andy Warhol

So there - to Spring, Hope and Giving..


  1. Beautiful work! It almost looks like encaustic with the translucent imagery.

  2. Lovely pieces you've found! Thanks for sharing the links.

  3. thank you sophie! i love your work and am so honored that you've written this.

  4. I am on the board of Konbit Sante, the organization working with Craft Hope to put out the word for Safe Birthing Kits for distribution by traditional birth attendants in the north of Haiti. Thank you for posting the link! If you want to know about our women's health project in Cap-Haitien--or any of a number of health and infrastructure efforts we support--go to www.healthyhaiti.org. Again,k thank you so much. "How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world."
