Judith Hahn

(American, born 1941, died 1999)

Late painter and printmaker Judith Hahn lived and worked in Woodinville, Western Washington. Diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 1981, Hahn's artistic process and style evolved to accommodate her physical limitations. Her artworks are often diptych, or two-panel, so that she could create larger compositions within the limited range of motion of her wheelchair. She noted that "Because my disability severely limits my mobility, I work (in studio) from photographs we take in the field, although I often use only part of a photographic image, or combine several."

She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Illinois and her Master of Fine Arts degree from Michigan State University. During the 1990s, several of her artworks were donated to support the Multiple Sclerosis Society.
