As many of you know, I have a few stores on Zazzle where I sell artistic products from my photography including greeting cards, posters, stamps, mugs, and all kinds of other gift products. From time to time, I like to share other artists' work there that has really impressed me.
Jude Maceren is one of those artists and is my showcase for today. He is a published artist residing at New Jersey and has two studio locations; in New Jersey and Costa Rica both of which he expresses his creativity. Creating fine art work is his passion, and it's evident in his work.
He says that at this point of his career he has an opportunity to express himself freely through painting inspired by the beauty of nature. He likes to paint the joy and the love that creation radiates to men. Because of this, he believes that there is a never-ending exchange of love between these two which he wants to show in the form of a painting.
He has created a series of exotic flowers done traditionally in acrylic, oil and watercolor which he was inspired to paint capturing the beauty, freshness, joy and love that radiate from each flower at its peak of blooming. His series of paintings evolve from flowers, animals and people showing that "There is a relationship of love in all created things".
Most of his items sold are prints and original art that he has created in watercolor, oil and acrylic mediums. Jude says, "I want to reach the people who love flowers and enjoy the beauty of nature through art." His work his been published in magazines, books, posters, and brochures of editorial, corporate and advertising publications. His client list includes: American Management Association, At-A-Glance, AT&T, Avon Books, Beckman, Bristol-Myers Squibb Company, Chicago Tribune, Fannie Mae, John Hancock, HR Magazine, Management Review Magazine, MCI, Modern Maturity Magazine, Moneygram, Mr. Coffee, Network Computing Magazine, NTC / Contemporary Publishing, Oracle, Prentice Hall, Purdue Agicultures Magazine, Quantum Learning Inc., The House of Seagram, The Purdue Alumnus Magazine, Web Server Magazine, and Your Money Magazine.
Awards he has received include (1984-2003): First Place United Nations Stamp Design Award, Boli Award (Best of Long Island Award), Optima Design Award, Northwest Craftmen's Club Award, The Visual Club Award and New Jersey Press Association Award, University Of Santo Tomas College Of Fine Arts Venavides Award, St. Lorenzo Ruiz Painting Competition Award.
The first time I visited the "JUDERM" store, I was spellbound. Jude Maceren is amazingly creative, and it is an honor to showcase his work here. Visit the JUDERM store, and you'll be amazed, too.
