Judy has been rosemaling for over 30 years and has studied with many Norwegian instructors. She has had the privilege of joining three study tours to Norway through Vesterheim Museum, and has earned a Gold Medal in both rosemaling and woodcarving. Her interests in Norwegian craft include kolrosing, chip carving, figure carving, acanthus carving and dragon-style carving. If that weren’t enough, Judy and her husband can boast of 4 children, 13 grandchildren and 8 great-grandchildren, keeping them quite busy all year-round.
