Media & technique
Julie is known mainly for her beautiful watercolours on paper, watercolour canvas and Yupo paper, but she also works in oil, acrylic, pastel and mixed media. The predominant subjects she covers are landscapes, seascapes, river scapes, street scenes, flowers and still life.
Classed as a realist-impressionist watercolour artist, she predominantly uses wet into wet technique.
With oils, Julie’s style is more realistic, using the traditional methods. She uses a mixture of both techniques when applying acrylic paint.A skilled draft person, drawing has always been a constant for Julie, as it forms the bones of all artworks.
Mixed media is another favourite, as she finds the freedom of having no restrictions declutters the mind. These works are categorised as contemporary. The outcome is subjective spontaneity, resulting in random forms and expressions.
Julie is a respected, sought after artist and tutor who holds many ‘en plein air’ and painting workshops, demonstrations and classes in Victoria and throughout Australia. In addition, she is a TAPP (Teacher and Artist Partnering Program) teacher for Chroma Australia in Atelier Interactive Acrylic.
Julie is a member of the prestigious Australian Watercolour Institute, Watercolour Society of Victoria, Pastel Society of Victoria, Peninsula Arts Society, Sherbrooke Art Society, Malvern Art Society, Berwick Art Society and McClelland Guild of Artists Inc. Julie is also a Fellow of the Australian Guild of Realist Artists.
She is a promoter of Daniel Smith Fine Watercolours and has her own Floral Dot Card, as well as a Signature Neef mop brush Series 554. All Julie’s art materials are available for purchase, on her website and through Senior Art Supplies, Melbourne.
