Artist Judy Cooley lives in Layton, Utah with her Husband, Erik and their four children. Her family members have always been her biggest fans and support. Like any other mother, her days are full of laundry, dishes, church assignments, exercise, and cheering at soccer games, etc. She tries to squeeze time to paint into her days. She says, "Life is perfect when I'm either camping or playing outdoors, and then painting it!" And sure enough, that is where you will find her.
She always has a camera with her so she doesn't miss anything that might just be a great painting in the making. Art is a part of her everyday life, because she paints what she lives. Her new found love is illustrating and writing children's books. Like most mothers, she's a children's book junkie.
Judy was thrilled to have her first children's book published in 2005 with by Shadow Mountain Publishing. Her second book, "Mom says I can" arrived just in time for Mother's Day 2008. It was honored with two "Mother's Choice Awards" in the categories of Art and Motivational. You can pick up a copy at your local book store. You'll love the happy ending!
Cooley is a successful artist with a solid track record of production and sales.
