Judith Connor Judith Connor began her career as an artist at age five when she realized people could actually earn a living by “coloring.” Connor spent most of her working life as an independent graphic designer and art director. But she’s been making her own art all that time, too. Her “coloring” led her for several years to the practice of Chinese landscape painting and calligraphy, and recently to creating mosaics — mostly birds and fish but at least one cat! She carries a sketch book everywhere she goes, drawing wherever life takes her, from sketching the villages of England, to capturing the luminous light and nostalgic beauty of Cape Cod and documenting her own neighborhood in Saint Paul, Minnesota, where she’s lived in the same zip code all her life. She has been SHARK REEF's co-art editor for years.
