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, at the Kensington Gallery and at the Red Poles Gallery in Mclaren Vale on the Fleurieu Peninsula, and also at Alice & Co and at the PG Printmakers Gallery, which are both 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 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. Recently she has been experimenting with combining digital printing with traditional techniques. Her favourite print medium is the monotype.
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. See Julia’s Classes and Workshops page for details.
Nearly all Julia’s work is available in the form of greetings cards, which are for sale only at the Hahndorf Academy, Urban Cow Studio, Gallery M and Alice & Co, or they can be ordered directly from Julia via this website.
