Julie graduated from Falmouth School of Art and lives and works in Cornwall drawsing inspiration from the natural world. Her current practice as a landscape painter seeks an emotional response to a sense of place, focusing on mood and atmosphere through the use of light and colour. It is in the shift between what is seen, remembered and experienced, that she seeks to capture. She says of her work:

Currently I am working from two areas of interest that are familiar to me, Antigua in the West Indies and the North Coast of Cornwall. Combining my love of travel and nature with the natural habitat of each landscape”

Her starting point is with the inks and Japanese brushes in her sketch book alongside photographic images as a shortcut to the inner landscape. Once back in the studio she works in oils on canvas, often preferring a large scale to create an immersive atmosphere which will hopefully draw the viewer into her world

Julie’s work has been exhibited around the country including the RWA Bristol several times. One of Julie’s sketchbooks was on tour around the country as part of the Sketch Open and a painting was recently through to stage 2 of the John Moore’s prize at the Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool. She is a member of the Newlyn society of Artists and her paintings have been featured several times in publications such as Fresh Paint magazine.
