About Artist Judie Bomberger
has had a creative drive since she was young. During family trips to the beach in the 1970’s she had her four sons collecting driftwood which she then embellished and sold. It wasn't however until she reached the age of 50 that she was fully able realize her artistic talents. Attempting to relax and enjoy an early retirement from a successful Real Estate career, she found herself embarking on a new adventure as a full time artist. Using metal collected from a scrap yard and a borrowed torch she began bringing to life the designs that had been percolating for years- - the resonating theme is strong- joyful, whimsical and just for the fun of it. In fact, the most common comment we hear regarding her work is "This artwork just makes me smile."
Judie worked for nine years in collaboration with Cirque Du Soleil creating steel sculptures and ornaments depicting their performers. In addition she was licensed to create a collectible series of metal sculptures commemorating the classic Beatles film Yellow Submarine. More recently Judie has been drawn to working with clay, molding three dimensional sculptures and hanging puppets that look like paper machie. Not leaving the metal behind completely, her folk art inspired clocks are cut from metal and use such details as wires and rivets. Each one of Judie's works of art has a name and many a story as well. Hers is a family run business with grandchildren often running about in the studio.
With that said, please enjoy the artwork with the spirit in which it was created- go ahead and smile, even laugh, because after all that's what it's all about!
