Julie's work is constantly evolving and developing. The main focus is strong observation and drawing in a continual search for the true identity of an object or place and the best way to visually represent it. She spends a lot of time looking and drawing in the landscape and studio, often drawing one thing repeatedly in different ways. Recently she has begun to explore printmaking.
Work is either within a domestic or landscape setting and often involves her interest in a sense of place, the relationship in the placing of objects, either by Julie or their natural placing within their environment. A strong interest in the fine detail of a single object which so often goes un-noticed is evident in her work. Her intention is to begin a narrative to continue from the bounds of the piece; how did those objects end up together? What was along the beach or hedgerow? Her work is a snapshot of a brief moment in time.
Julie works in a variety of media inspired by domestic settings or natural history. The exhibition will focus on detailed work of seed heads, her stunning garden and her current residency with the Langdyke Countryside Trust. Julie's garden which now opens for the National Garden scheme will be open for visitors to wander around.Weekends: 3
