Julia is a contemporary painter of vivid abstract seascapes and sunsets influenced by the British Coastline, particularly Sussex and Cornwall. Music is integral to her work and her paintings are named from songs. Julia paints from memory rather than life, recalling an inspiring place as a starting point. The music she listens to while painting influences where the process takes her and she feels that using a lyric for a title gives the painting extra depth. Julia is endlessly fascinated by the sea and the horizon and many of her paintings are inspired by light on water and reflections. She always aims to evoke a sense of place however abstract the work becomes. Her latest paintings were painted to and titled from songs by Sandy Denny, Fairport Convention, John Martyn and Johnny Flynn. Julia graduated in Fine Art at Brighton University and many of her paintings are in private collections.
