Judy Thielen has been decorating the windows of White Center businesses for fourteen years, working meticulously to create highly colorful window paintings.
Judy Thielen brings joy to White Center windows
Judy Thielen has been doing window art as a side hobby for about fourteen years. Her holiday artwork has adorned local businesses such as Marv’s Broiler and the Barrel Tavern. For this Christmas season she decorated the front windows of the Locker Room Tavern in White Center on 16th Ave. SW.
Ms. Thielen has had a creative bent since she was a young girl, expressing herself through her drawings. She was introduced to art by her father who did window creations as a side hobby, but was a painter on a much larger scale for the Boeing Aircraft Company.
Each creation takes about one day to finish. “I go to Google and print the art I want (for the intended purpose). The pictures are tiny; I use a sharpie pen and draw them by hand (onto the window).
Then begin the painting”.
Her window art lends a festive attitude to the business core of White Center
