Like a variety of printmakers who use relief matrices, Judy Youngblood tends toward printing combinations or individual elements of matrices, varying colors of ink, and creating an ever-changing flow of imagery. On occasion she combines numerous individually printed images to create large installations. Her 9×23 foot image, Wintery Mix, 2013-14, is one example.
Youngblood also works in intaglio. Yet, whatever her print medium of choice, her imagery from the last several decades tends to explore changing weather patterns with particular emphases on storms, rain, wind, and bodies of water. Selected works, like Wavering Front #2, 2003-04, reflect her penchant for visual references to 19th century Japanese relief printmaking.
Youngblood lives and works in Dallas, Texas. She is a Professor Emerita of Art at the University of North Texas, Denton where she taught printmaking and book arts. See her web site at: https://judyyoungblood.com/
