Julie studied a Fine Art Degree in Birmingham, specialising in painting. After graduating she spent a few years teaching life drawing and painting classes at the Midlands Arts Centre until doing a PGCE in Art & Design.
Julie’s work is primarily influenced by her experiences of time spent in rainforests such as the Amazon and Borneo. The paintings are mainly recognisable images of the rainforests, whilst hinting at the hidden dangers lurking within these tropical paradises. Recently Julie has taken up painting seascapes and the beautiful Suffolk skies.
