Born in Adelaide, South Australia, Julie studied art as a teenager and began a professional career in the arts that spans over four decades. She has a remarkable background in various areas of the arts including; fine art, performing arts, theatrical design, graphic arts and fashion design.
In the 80’s she further studied with international artists in the USA and worked with artist Frank Frazetta and authors Isaac Asimov and Frederick Pohl. In the 90’s she returned to Australia designing fashion collections for several labels including Pierre Cardin and then returned to fine arts as her primary focus in the late 90’s.
In the 2000’s she resurrected her craft jewellery skills from art school and further studied lost wax casting and fine jewellery making to create a collection of artisan jewellery which she produces concurrently with her paintings and drawings.
Julie is a versatile and prolific artist; producing works in a wide variety of medium and distinctive styles. She moves from contemporary realist to abstract, dependent only on her inspiration at the time.
She has travelled extensively and has lived and worked in the USA, SE Asia, Europe and now resides in Sydney, Australia. She has lectured on design at the WA Central TAFE School of Art, Design & Media, conducted workshops for artfest’s and art groups and been featured in the Artists Palette magazine. Her work has been exhibited in solo and group shows in Australia and she has jointly exhibited with the late Frank Hodgkinson AM. Her work is represented in Australia, Italy and Germany.
