Judy Barrass began working as a potter and weaver in NSW in the early 1970’s. In the early 1990’s, she undertook a course in Paper and Book at the University of Tasmania Art School, and since then has concentrated on books and paper as her medium. Much of her work revolves around using the book as a medium for visual interpretation of the landscape. Using handmade and commercial papers, found objects, collage, maps, flyers, photographs, prints, fabric and whatever else comes to hand, Judy plans to develop several artists books focussing on Hill End. Judy’s residency will be funded by the Australia Council.
