In Self-Portrait of a Painter, a Triptych Memoirs, journey through the fascinating life of a remarkable woman, born to an Irish mother and Jewish father in the vibrant, working-class neighbourhood of The Rocks in Sydney. From her roots in a Socialist household committed to social justice, she defies convention to become a celebrated portrait artist. This compelling biography traces her life’s arc, from her formative years to her education at Art School, from marriage and motherhood to the realization of her artistic ambitions.

She paints the faces of diverse subjects – some at odds with her own ideals – yet each becomes a fascinating character study etched onto canvas. As she finds love a second time, her world expands further through international travels, taking her to the esteemed art galleries of Europe.

Immerse yourself in a story rich in art, social activism, and personal growth, a tribute to a woman who never wavers in her values while capturing the essence of others. Self-Portrait of a Painter, a Triptych Memoirs is not just an interesting read; it is an exploration of a life passionately lived.

Judith Monica O’Conal-Prinz is a renowned artist in Sydney, her main genre being portraiture, although she also paints landscapes and still life. This is the story of her life from her early days living in the inner city through to her life as a portrait painter. It shows her early upbringing as a socialist, which she still strongly follows today. Her love of nature and fauna is deeply embedded in her. Since meeting her second husband she has extensively travelled overseas and in particular to Italy to study the Great Masters of the Renaissance. This is her story.
