About Us

Judsons Art Outfitters has been supplying Plein Air artists with the tools they need to get out and paint since 1987.  *Hey, that's thirty years!* We understand the joys and frustrations of plein air and try our best to provide the right tools and the help you need to fulfill your artistic vision.   If you have any questions about getting started or picking the right equipment to fit your needs, give us a call!


Meet Our Staff: 

Carl paints plein air in oils and acrylics and he is the original "Guerrilla Painter." View a sample of his work at his site: www.carljudson.com or check out one of his four Guerrilla Painter's Notebooks. He can often be found on the road painting and talking to people. You can find out about upcoming trips at Where's Carl Now? and follow him on Track My Tour.

Sarah is the person you will usually talk to when you call us. She is always glad to help if you have any questions about our products or plein air painting. She paints in watercolor and has a BFA from Colorado State University.

Becky is our in-house manufacturer and makes a number of our products. She will sometimes take a long lunch break to go out plein air painting somewhere with watercolor or pastel. She also loves creating works of art with a variety of textiles, yarns, threads and recycled plastic.

Nina has a wide range of jobs here from package design, catalog and other graphic design projects in-between managing our donations program and answering calls when Sarah is unavailable. When life isn't too hectic, she's a sequential artist. You can see some of her Guerrilla Painter Toons here.

April is our accountant. Her artistic abilities lean toward music, as she plays the harp, violin, piano, recorder, and English hand bells. She also enjoys cooking and reading 

Eleanor is our wholesale coordinator, graphic designer, and resident computer guru. She has a MFA from Colorado State University and mostly paints surrealistic landscapes in oil. In her free time she enjoys learning new things (currently geology and guitar), playing video games and hiking with Aurora.

Aurora  the husky-wolf is the office greeter and enjoys saying hi to everyone who stops by, particularly when the UPS guys bring her a treat. When she isn’t sleeping she enjoys hiking and going for rides in the car.

Arthur paints with oils and soft pastel. He took up plein air painting at the tender age of 14.
