About Judy McCoy Foxx

I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t drawing or painting. I was always encouraged by a loving family and many friends, and they are still what keeps me moving forward.

I was selling my own paintings long before I began formal education in art. Realistic still life and landscape are my first passion. Non-objective mixed media runs a close second.

Visiting many art museums and galleries from various parts of the world has lead to high expectations set for my own realistic work, but creating new ideas is the fiber of my artistic soul. Most of my realistic paintings begin as memories from my own life. My heart sings as observers say things like, “I used to have one of those,” or “My grandpa has one just like that.” Those words become the validation of my existence as artist.


I was born in McDowell County and moved to Boone County shortly after marriage. We raised our three children here. After graduation from WVSC, I spent twenty three years teaching art in all grade levels, including community college. After retiring from the public school system I became a member of Tamarack, Gallery Eleven, and West Virginia Allied Artists. My work is mainly acrylic still life, but I also enjoy exploring other media and art styles, especially non-objective mixed media. I have 23 years experience teaching and have been a paid set designer for several community plays through ACT and STAGE.
