Julie strives to create dynamic compositions through the means of colour, contrast, texture and energy. Being emotionally connected to her work is very important and the Scottish scenery provides an endless source of inspiration. While enjoying a wide range of mediums, Julie tends to focus on fabrics and painting. Working quickly, she has a relaxed style of painting and often uses acrylics which are well suited to a quick and bold approach. She finds that working outdoors creates an energy within a painting which helps both painter and viewer to feel immersed in the subject.
When creating her fabric collages, Julie uses a variety of fabrics to build up the scene before adding detail with machine embroidery which, like her drawing style, tends to be loose and expressive rather than precise. Julie’s love of textile art began with patchwork, a method that she finds both comforting and rewarding as she develops the craft with her own unique designs. As a lover of colour, Julie really enjoys selecting colours and patterns that work together. She also likes the idea of using scraps and off-cuts, which allows the incorporation of fabrics that hold special memories.
Julie’s creativity consumes her in a very positive way and she is driven to produce things that are both beautiful and evocative. Her ideas are constantly evolving and she enjoys the full range of projects from one-off commissions, to small gifts and greetings cards for that important personal touch.
