About

judithtummino

Judith Tummino was born in Washington, D. C. and spent summers at the Chesapeake Bay.  Raised in Maryland, she made frequent trips to the Shenandoah Valley on holidays to visit the Civil War home of her mother’s relatives.   She later attended Colorado State University.  The wetlands of Parkers Creek watershed, the Chesapeake, the mountains of the Shenandoah as well as the beauty of Colorado all contributed to her love of the landscape.

Her early years growing up in Maryland gave her easy access to the vast art collections of the city of Washington, D.C.

Love of the art collections as well as the changing landscape cemented her desire to paint plein air throughout her life.
