Judy Riley


I first became interested in creating art after moving to the Monterey Peninsula in 1997. Living in this intensely beautiful area inspired me to begin drawing, painting, and creating ceramic art. My husband and I love to travel, and together we record our trips in pen and ink drawings. Sitting side by side, we sketch our private interpretations of the scenes before us, which we then share, critique, and discuss.

The study and exploration of art has been at the center of my life since retirement. I am an active member of several local artist organizations, including the Central Coast Art Association (CCAA) and the Monterey Peninsula Art Foundation (MPAF). I currently displays my paintings in the Monterey Peninsula Art Foundation Gallery on Cannery Row.

In my previous life, I earned a BA degree at UC Berkeley in 1967. I lived in the Bay Area and worked for the County of San Mateo until I retired in 1992. My husband, George, and I are celebrating 30 happy years together.
