Julia was a student at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago from 1971-1976. She subsequently worked in photography and printmaking in Chicago, and then worked in graphic design on her return to London.
However her main interest has always been painting to which she devotes herself to entirely.
Her paintings are a direct confrontation of a visual experience depicting an image that is constantly in the process of changing. She strives to recreate a pictorial space with the intrinsic rhythms of mountains, sky, light and dark that are found in a landscape.
Julia lives and works in South East London where she is a resident at the Arts Studio Company Trust.
