Native American Artist | Echota Cherokee Elder
As a visionary artist, Judy DeRosa’s work beautifully expresses the spiritual yearnings of this age. Her art is a visual meditation for the inner peace of searching souls.
Judy’s art work is created on canvas, paper and various mixed mediums. Her art path has brought a depth of personal understanding in the intertwining of the arts and the symbolism of diverse indigenous traditions of the world. Patrons span the globe from a Sacred Temple in Kyoto, Japan to London, England.
Judy has further challenged her artist expression by teaching art in “Arts in Corrections” prison program. In addition, as a Native American and ordained minster, Rev. DeRosa conducted Native services such as Sacred Circles, Dream Group, “Shawl” making and gatherings for “New Year Fire Circle” at Valley Women’s Prison in Chowchilla. She also shared with the inmates, the Empty Bowls Project, an international project to fight hunger, using their hand crafted work to raise funds for the local community.
According to Judy, “I know our Earth experience is a university in which we are here to learn and share while bringing compassion into the lives of people we meet. Finding your voice through art is a powerful act of taking your life back.”
