Judith Ann Braun started her career as a conventional artist specializing in realistic figure painting. After 2 decades, she decided to retire her brushes and employee her ten digits. The result is her critically acclaimed Fingerings series.

Braun’s Fingering pieces are typically charcoal dust landscapes, florals and abstracts she paints with her fingertips. Up close her work resembles the aftermath of unsupervised children playing in a fireplace. Step back, however, and the kiddy smudges coalesce into verdant hillsides, overhanging trees and reflective waterways.

Her art is enjoying critical acclaim and commercial success. She also saves a ton in art supplies.
