My love affair with paint...

"I dream my painting then I paint my dream..."  Vincent Van Gogh

I paint all the time. When I'm not painting, I'm thinking about painting. I have more ideas than there are hours in the day!

I create mainly abstract and semi abstract contemporary pieces and love the freedom and endless possibilities of both styles.


I enjoy using conventional brushstroke techniques, but also the challenge of finding less predictable ways to create the effect I want. I often paint in time to music. It's exhilarating to create a piece which is quite literally a direct transposition of sound into a visual entity.

I work mainly in acrylics and inks on stretched canvas, with the addition of oil sticks to highlight and accentuate certain areas. I particularly love the energy of painting large scale canvases. Composition is mostly planned with meaningful and purposeful brush stokes. But sometimes I let it just randomly flow, letting the marks appear and do their own thing. 

My inspiration comes from the beauty of the world around us: the vibrant colours of nature and the wonders of the universe. I love spending time near water; at the beach or by a river. I find the colours of beautiful sunsets and moody cloud formations totally mesmerising. 

​But in addition to these physical and visual sources, my paintings will often reflect our unseen emotions. 


​I want my art to make people feel: to resonate with it, evoking feelings of happiness, peace and tranquility to relieve every day stresses. Or to spark an energy to uplift, heal and inspire. I'm a firm believer of the positive impact art can have on the world and I want to reach out and share it with as many people as I can.

Interior Design

I have a keen interest in interior design and home decor- it's where I started: creating wall art for my own home.

I love nothing more than discussing themes and colour schemes with my clients and then seeing my creations up on the wall in their forever homes!

My work is also popular with boutique hotels, restaurants and hair & beauty salons. A Julie Connor Art installation can fill blank walls with beautiful contemporary artwork and at the same time earn businesses 10% on any sales!
