Julie lives in Kent. She was brought up in March in Cambridgeshire where she attended Cambridge College of Arts and Technology to pursue a Foundation in Art, followed by a degree in Printed Textile design, at Trent Polytechnic Nottingham achieving a First class (Hons). She then went on to design household textiles, wallpapers and prints for ceramics inspired by her love of flowers.

Following a Certificate in Education, Julie began teaching and inspiring adults to paint in watercolour, not only to share her painting skills but for the benefits of well-being and good health. Teaching venues include gardens, galleries and cruise liners. Julie exhibited at Watts Gallery in Surrey whilst serving as Artist-in-Residence.

Her awards have included the Society of Botanical Artists’ Certificate of Botanical Merit for a freestyle interpretation of an iris and the Elizabeth Smail Memorial Award for Colour and Composition while exhibiting at Florum in Kent.

Julie is a regular contributor to the Leisure Painter magazine, and has written a number of art books.
