Julia is a fine artist; her large-scale paintings on aluminium are deceptively simple and elegant.

She says: “I am unashamed in my ambition to make beautiful paintings. In my third year at art college in Cheltenham I saw paintings by Jason Martin and was seduced by the way light reflects off the surface of aluminium. Ever since then I have been finding ways to manipulate the paint on metal, pouring to make delicate transparent layers, using terrible rough old brushes for texture and marks."

“When I finished Art Foundation in Cardiff I nearly applied for the glass course in Swansea. The immediacy of paint, its lusciousness, its physicality won the day. Now after 18 years with aluminium I have started new work on glass.”

“Currently I’m awaiting approval from a corporate client in China. My proposal is a glass installation that combines drawing and painting of foliage in my garden. I think the soft lines and colours will ‘humanise’ their marble clad interiors. It’s just possible they will think so too!”

Julia set up her studio in Cardiff in 2000. Since then she has built an international reputation. Her contemporary paintings have been exhibited worldwide and are in the collections of private & corporate collectors including UBS bank, BP, GlaxoSmithKline, Barclays Bank, Johnson & Johnson.
