Always a fan of a good story Julia studied illustration at Edinburgh College of Art. A passion for screen printing followed. She brought to life literary characters she loved in little hand printed books.
A move to Brighton gave her the opportunity to study a Masters in Sequential Illustration and continue with her making and printing.
A painting career then developed from showing a few tentative paintings in a pop up shop. Julia painted florals and landscapes and was published nationally and internationally.
Her love of the outdoors and her surroundings still continues and is fuelled by a move back to her home of Yorkshire. Now she paints soft, dream like landscapes of places close to her heart from her studio in Hebden Bridge. She also loves to paint whimsical birds and hand prints a range of screen printed products. Screen printing has opened the door for her to create not just art to hang on a wall but art in the form of cushions, brooches, mobiles and much more.
All her products are proudly handmade here in Yorkshire!
Julia aims to make art that makes you smile; bright pictures to escape grey days.
