Judith Shaylor was born in 1966 in Wolverhampton. At the age of 16 she was given a place to study Art and Design at Bournville School of Art, where she specialised in Textiles and Ceramics. She went on to study for a B.A Hons in the Drawing and Painting Department at Edinburgh College of Art, where her main disciplines were Tapestry and Printmaking.
Today the artist sees herself as a conceptual artist - each idea she has, often generates the need for a different style, a different material, even at times a different mindset in order to create something original and exciting. The Artist uses paint, collage, weaving, embroidery, photography, installation to achieve her aim: to create original work which will go on to hopefully excite, intrigue, and move her audience.
