Judith Tucker was born in Bangor, Wales in 1960. She completed a B.A. Fine Art at the Ruskin School of Art, St Anne's College, Oxford, (1978–81) an M.A. Fine Art, at Bretton Hall, (1997–98) and a PhD in Fine Art at the University of Leeds (1999–2002). Tucker is co-convenor of LAND2, a research network of artists associated with Higher Education who are concerned with radical approaches to landscape with a particular focus on memory, place and identity. She exhibits regularly in the UK and Europe. Between 2003–2006 Tucker was an AHRC Research Fellow in the Creative and Performing Arts.


Of her work she says “My practice explores the meeting of social history, personal memory and landscapes; it investigates their relationship through drawing, painting and scholarly writing.” Paintings and drawings by Tucker have been exhibited in ‘Landscape During Times of Uncertainty’ at Southampton City Art Gallery (2015), ‘Drawn 2013’, Royal West of England Academy (2013), ‘Shadows Traces Undercurrents’ Katherine E. Nash Gallery, Regis Centre for Art, Minneapolis, USA, (2012), ‘Arts and Geographies’, Musée des Moulages, Lyon, France, (2013) ‘Postmemorial Landscapes’, Armory Gallery, Blacksburg, Virginia, USA. Her work has been acquired by New Hall Collection of Women's Art, Cambridge, New College, Oxford, The Priseman Seabrook Collection, St Matthias Kolleg, Germany and Swindon Art Gallery.
