Julies works with charcoal, paper and clay making drawings, vessels and sculptures in response to studies of extreme landscapes and natural forms. Distilling different perspectives, she is drawn in particular to patterns and formations that have been carved and eroded by the elements revealing both mesmerising and intricate patterns
Both drawings and the ceramic work reveal just a glimpse of the landscape structure. Reflecting both its stability as defined by the robust clay body and its fragility revealing in contrast the delicate paper clay forms. A reflection on our present fragile landscape .
Julie trained as a nurse before studying graphic design in Australia and a degree in Fine Art at the University of Hertfordshire in 2012. She presently works from a studio in Letchworth, Hertfordshire as a member of Digswell Arts Trust. She exhibits her work within galleries and events across the county.
With a keen interest in drawing and inspiring others Julie also runs drawing classes for schools and special interest groups.
