A self-proclaimed 'Perfectionist' inspired by the delicacy of detail in life. Julia works in a realistic style and pays meticulous attention to the tiniest of details. Showing an intimate look at nature, colourful accurate pieces allow her artwork to embrace contemporary and traditional styles.
Countless watercolour marks painted in delicate gradations and shades with a variety of brushstrokes create the wonderful three-dimensional qualities in every painting, working hard to give each portrait an individual expression. The importance of studying each animal - the anatomy, fur / skin type, colouring, characteristics, behaviour, and learning about their natural habitat surround. Julia fuses these elements into every picture and enjoys the challenge of applying them to the chosen medium, showcasing the beauty and spirit of an individual.
'...Watercolour as a medium (for painting) has a great strength yet subtle vulnerability that allows the delicacy of life to be portrayed...'
Julia has sold artwork to private collectors locally and internationally, and has recently completed her first book cover illustration. Represented by Haddon Galleries at Torquay, you can find original artworks and her first selection of limited edition prints.
