Meet The Tutor:
Judit Matthews is a Surrey-based illustrative artist who draws inspiration from the nature that surrounded her growing up in Hungary. She has illustrated four children’s books and appeared in Channel 4’s Watercolour Challenge. She won Surrey Life Magazine’s landscape Artist of the Year in 2017.
“My subject matter ranges from quirky illustrated maps to abstract landscapes with lots of little creatures, animals and figures. I love pattern and colour. I use acrylics, ink with a dip pen and some oil pastels and collage too. I don’t try to be realistic, I like to break things down, simplify them. Most of my work has a naive feel. I don’t pay attention to scale or colour of the real thing.
“I love the Surrey countryside, which is so rich with wildlife. Foxes, birds and hares often appear in my work.”
