After many happy years working as a freelance artist and illustrator for London's top illustration agency, Julie is now concentrating mainly on her own paintings (& occasional commissions).

She is passionate about sketching on location, particularly in Cumbria and anywhere in Italy, often incorporating old maps, tickets and papers from her journeys into her sketches & the finished works in her studio.

Although Julie has lived in the North West of England all her life, her highly original paintings and prints are finding their way around the world, from Ambleside to Australia, from New York to New Zealand. Currently showing at Vermilion Gallery, Princess Street, Knutsford.


Julie's solo show in the Shippon Gallery at Kurt Schwitter's MERZ BARN near Elterwater, Cumbria. 11th - 26th September 2014.

This is a fantastic opportunity to visit the famous Merz Barn, where Schwitters worked as a refugee after fleeing Germany in 1940, until his death here in the Lake District in 1948.
