Julia lives near Port Noarlunga in South Australia. She teaches drawing and also runs printmaking workshops for schools and community groups. Her work can be seen at the Hahndorf Academy and at Red Poles Gallery in Mclaren Vale on the Fleurieu Peninsula, and also at Alice & Co in Kyneton, Victoria and at the PG Printmakers Gallery, in Brunswick St., Fitzroy, Melbourne.
Julia grew up in England and studied illustration and printmaking in London, at St. Martins and Harrow Schools of Art. She has illustrated over 50 educational books for Australian and UK publishers, including Macmillan Education, Thomas Nelson, Evans UK and Era Publications (SA).
Julia enjoys producing work using traditional printmaking techniques, especially etching and wood engraving. She also specialises in and teaches solarplate etching, a technique which does not require the use of toxic chemicals. She also combines digital printing with traditional techniques. Recently she has returned to illustration, and is currently working on a picture book.
Nearly all Julia’s work is available in the form of greetings cards, which can be bought at the Hahndorf Academy, Gallery M, Murray Bridge Gallery, Urban Cow, Milan Rouge and Alice & Co, or you can visit Julia at her studio in Christies Beach ( by appointment, please contact Julia via this website).
You can view and buy Julia’s original handmade prints, digital prints, drawings and paintings at Artfinder.com
Cards, posters, Tshirts etc made with her designs can be found at Red Bubble
Julia is also building an Etsy shop where you can buy mugs, Tshirts and giclee prints
Julia teaches a beginners’ drawing course called ‘Drawing for the Terrified’, which is designed to help students tap into the ‘right’ side of the brain, thereby liberating themselves from the inhibiting influence of the logical ‘left’ side.
She also runs life drawing sessions, tutored and untutored, at the Norton Summit Community Centre and at Port Noarlunga Arts Centre. See Julia’s Classes and Workshops page and her WordPress blog, Touchpaper Drawing Tips, for details of all the drawing classes.
Julia occasionally runs beginners’ printmaking workshops, designed to help people make their own prints with the minimum of equipment. For more information about upcoming print workshops, visit Julia’s WordPress blog, Touchpaper Printmaking Tips.
