As an artisan, Judy Williamson needs only to look outside her window for inspiration. From her house sitting majestically atop a hill, she has a direct view of South Mountain and the Washington Monument and is surrounded by a rural canvas painted this time of year in burnished golds, browns and reds. It's a setting that offers few distractions, making her creativity seem effortlessly achieved. It helps, of course, that she loves what's she's doing.
