Julia had training as a watercolour artist before going on to learn in an one-on-one setting from an accomplished fine artist. She believes that this more tailored approach has left her free to explore her expressivist style. Her preferred medium is oil paints as she enjoys working in vibrant, opulent colour. Julia's work is an emotional and spiritual response to 'being' and her aim is to convey wonder. Some works are deliberately still, others dynamic. In all, there is a deliberate avoidance of figures or distinct elements in order to maintain a freedom of thought and response.
'The soul becomes dyed with the colour of its thoughts.' (Marcus Aurelius)
