||Judy Swallow was born in 1954 at
Kipling, Saskatchewan, and was raised on a farm near the hamlet of
Peebles. This is where she developed a keen awareness and appreciation
for nature. She spent many hours observing and sketching her
surroundings. It was through this early interaction with nature that
Judy discovered inspiration for all her creative work.
Although essentially self-taught, Judy received formal education and
training at the Minnesota School of Art, Brandon University and the
University of Regina. Her instruction came from a number of artists,
including the painter Michael Lonechild and wildlife artist Bob Kuhn.
Judy currently resides in the town of Alameda, Saskatchewan with her
husband Glenn. They have two children and five grandchildren.
