Julie is a thoroughbred Yorkshire artist who hails from the dizzy heights of Queensbury village. She is mostly self-taught, backed-up by several vocational art courses, courtesy of London Art College and inspired by instructional books on coloured pencil painting. Influenced and supported by internationally acclaimed CP artists, she has won awards for her work and continues to emerge as a commissioned artist with portraiture, still life, wildlife and animal portraits amongst her growing art portfolio.
