Summer by the Sea


La vie en rose for local artist Judy Judy Judy The desire to help improve the lives of women drew Judy to her profession and inspired her to begin her own La Jolla business in 1991, she said. As the owner of the salon, Judy Judy Judy on Herschel Avenue, Judy was the first to bring hair-loss treatments for women to the area. She was trained in Paris at the Rene Furterer Institute and in London at Vidal Sassoon. Judy Judy Judy Her passion for life, art and beauty are apparent in her studio and shine outside her business as well. Currently, she is vice president of the La Jolla Art Association, and her award-winning fine art is displayed in her studio and throughout La Jolla. For several years, she volunteered for the American Cancer Society’s “Look Good Feel Better” program, where she helped women undergoing cancer treatments improve their self-esteem through hair and makeup sessions.

What brought you to La Jolla? I wanted to open a business and live by the ocean in a small village atmosphere. I have had the pleasure of doing that now for 22 years.

What might you improve in the area? I would like to see all of the business vacancies filled in the Village of La Jolla, see our community thriving, and always be able to find a parking spot. Who or what inspires you? The late Sebastian Capella, my oil painting teacher, inspired me in both my painting and my daily life. He taught me keep painting and never give up. I have a lot of energy, so I’m inspired by colorful and interesting people, places and things. When I see different people or events, I like to paint them in an imaginative, lively and vivid fashion. Right now, I’m using that inspiration to paint wearable silk art for the La Jolla Art and Wine Festival in October. All profits raised benefit the local public elementary and middle schools. These proceeds are for underfunded programs and onsite medical care.
