has a unique way of looking at life. You might say that she grabs
life "by the tail/tale". She doesn't dwell on the darkness
that each and everyone of us experience at some time, but pulls our
spirits into the bright and positive.
The poems in her book, "Looking for the Sunrise" are "refreshing".
Judy's excellent command of the English language gives one a true
appreciation of what poetry can do. Her poems weave visual images
that are luscious to behold in our minds eye. She is an uplifting
scholar and offers her readers a collection of works that are truly
a pleasure to read. Thank you Judy for such a wonderful body of work!

and artist Judy O'Toole-Freel paints with words, and what glorious
mindscapes she creates,indeed. From the crystalline frost-covered
morning and the multi-hued participants depicted in "A Call to
the Hunt," to the rebirth of spring heralded in "Cancion
del Sol," O'Toole-Freel peers outside and within, and speaks
with a poignant voice about beauty, aging, the excitement of being,
and opening oneself up to experiencing all that the world has to offer.
is worth the trip to travel with her, "Looking for the Sunrise."
