Julie is best known for her landscapes and profusions of impressionist flowers on paper, W/C canvas and yupo paper. These are her main joy and draw many admirers. But she also works with Oil, Acrylic, Pastel and Mixed Media.
Her watercolours are both Realist and Impressionistic using her favourite wet into wet technique. With Oils, her style is more Realistic using the traditional methods and Julie uses a mixture of both techniques when applying Acrylic paint.
A skilled draft person, drawing has always been a constant, as it forms the bones of all artworks.
Mixed Media is another favourite, as she finds the freedom of having no restrictions un-clutters the mind. These works would be categorised as contemporary. The outcome is subjective spontaneity, resulting in random forms and expressions.
Initially self-taught, she went on to study Fine Art studies at T.A.F.E. Ten years at Mitchell College Summer Schools studying Watercolours and Portraits, and further Tertiary Studies at C.S.U. B.A. Majoring in Fine Arts and Textiles.
Students Australia wide know her for her workshops given at art societies and Art Education courses run annually in many centres.
