“She had such energy and spirit – and always combined her impressively broad-ranging, in-depth knowledge of antiques with a life-long passion to make the world of collecting accessible and unintimidating [sic] to all.

“Judith will be much missed by all those readers and viewers who looked to her for expert and reassuringly friendly advice.”

Judith appeared alongside Fiona Bruce on the popular antiques show, and has published numerous books on antiques and interiors. She has also contributed to several newspapers and magazines such as BBC Homes and Antiques.
