An avid painter since the age of 4, artist (and new member of the Caribbean Hall of Fame) Judy Ann MacMillan is an expert at capturing every aspect of coastal culture, from the free-spirited people of Kingston to the relaxing blue-green waves of the Caribbean Sea.

Judy Ann's fascination with Jamaica reflects her emotional connection to the island. She finds childhood memories in the faces of the people and in the natural beauty of the place. "Painting has become the way I express and live my life," she says. "I never know whether painting filled my life because it was empty, or if I emptied my life in order for painting to fill it.
