A little about me:
What feels like a lifetime ago, I moved with our young family to the USA from London and despite living here for 23 years and counting, it's fair to say that I will never sound like a local which happens to work brilliantly for me as a voice actor.
It does make for a great conversation starter though, which is never a bad thing for someone who enjoys traveling and meeting new people.
I live in the historic town of Waxhaw, on the outskirts of the "Queen City", Charlotte, NC.
Becoming an empty nester provided me with the perfect opportunity to pursue voice acting although I've always found myself acting in some form of acting or narration.
I love a great story and one particular storyteller who held me spellbound was my elementary teacher,
She embraced vintage, wore scarlet red lipstick, styled white blonde hair, and was glamorous in every way in my 9-year-old opinion
She held my rapt attention but more importantly, she nurtured a passion in me for theater, the arts, and self-expression. She taught me to read with zeal, she encouraged me to read with conviction and a greater understanding of the text.
My report card at the end of that year read;
"Judith has a delicious wit, she's vivacious, bubbly, and full of sparkle!"
I tend to think that life generally needs more sparkle so I bring this energy into the booth, and enjoy the variety of voicing scripts that come my way.
From thought to reality
Fast forward quite a few years with several narrations for on-stage productions and requests to bring life to dull copy in numerous circumstances and I circled back to how I could intentionally make a living using my voice.
Using my acting know-how, it was time to investigate a way to make this work for me as I found myself with the time and capacity to give to it.
Having invested in learning, coaching, and understanding my niche for where my voice would fit, I launched into the entrepreneur realm as a female voice artist and The Voice of Judith Bareham became a reality.
