Judy Buxton was born in Australia and moved to the UK in the early 1980s. She graduated from Falmouth College of Art with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art. After marrying the artist Jeremy ANNEAR, with whom she shares a passion for music, she undertook a three-year postgraduate diploma in painting at the Royal Academy in London. The couple spent a number of years in Australia before returning to Cornwall in 1994 to settle on the Lizard peninsula.

In 1995, Buxton was granted full membership of the NSA, and in the same year became a visiting lecturer in Fine Art at Falmouth College of Art.

She has been a regular exhibitor at the Millennium Gallery in St Ives (now Anima-Mundi) and also at the Campden Gallery in Gloucestershire and the Thackeray Gallery in London. In 2005 she was awarded second place in the prestigious 25th anniversary Hunting Art Prize.

A keen horserider, Buxton breeds and paints horses.
