She has exhibited work in Canada, the U.S., Cuba, Germany and Switzerland. She has been the recipient of awards and grants from the Canada Council for the Arts, and the Ontario Arts Council. Judd has been awarded residencies at the Kloster Bentlage Cultural Centre, (Rheine, Germany), the Klondike Institute of Art and Culture, (Dawson City, YK), the Banff Centre for the Arts (Banff, AB) and the Druckwerk Printmaking Studio (Basel, Switzerland).
