Judy Stokes APSNZ


Living at Muriwai beach, New Zealand I divide my time between being in nature with my camera and enjoying processing the outcome of those hours in my studio overlooking the sea. My photographs focus on capturing the mood rather than the literal translation of what is in front of me and are often described as looking like paintings rather than photographs.

I love to share my work and exhibit regularly throughout New Zealand. I have images enjoying homes all over the world. In 2017 I was thrilled to win the Taranaki National Art Award with my image “Storm Out at Sea.” I also published my first book “Moments in Muriwai” and found a new passion for creating books….the challenge of getting the spreads to work together was invigorating. I have another book in the pipeline!

I also love to share my knowledge with others and thoroughly enjoy taking tours with NZPhotography tours – sharing my experience in Impressionistic and Abstract photography to inspire others. Please enjoy browsing through my images and if you would like to purchase any feel free to contact me to arrange prints, framed or unframed.
