Julie is a predominantly self taught, multi-media, UK Visual Artist. Born in Staffordshire, she now lives in Colchester, Essex with husband Sean and has two children, a dog and two cats!
Julie began drawing and painting at an early age, but decided against any formal art training, choosing instead to develop her gift through self taught means. She consequently moved through the educational system into a successful and diverse career in nursing.
Some years ago, Julie worked in television for the BBC as a Medical Advisor on two drama series: Holby City and Silent Witness. "This is where I began to get commissions for portraits, as the cast and crew would see me sketching on the back of scripts during long filming schedules.
More recently, she discovered abstraction through a love of interior design and the desire for unique original artwork to compliment her own home decor.
Up until lockdown in March 2020, Julie was working as an Advanced Nurse Practitioner at Colchester, Clacton & Harwich Urgent Treatment Centres.
"After taking commissions for collectors as a side hustle for many years, I always dreamed that one day I would give up the sensible job and follow my heart. For that very reason, the Covid-19 pandemic proved to be a bit of a blessing in disguise, as for health reasons I was advised to isolate. This eventually forced the issue of giving up nursing and on doing so, I have been able to concentrate on my art business full-time from my home studio which has been fantastic."
Although she is currently concentrating on statement pieces for galleries and exhibitions, Julie still welcomes portrait commissions as well as custom paintings in her current abstract style.
