Hi, I'm Julia, an artist based near to Buckshaw village. I love to paint vibrant landscapes, primarily in acrylic. My work is inspired by places I have travelled to or have been lucky to live in - such as the French Alps, Russia and the Caucasus. Well of course I like to paint local landscapes as well and have produced a number of paintings of my local area including Rivington and Brinscall (some available in prints and cards too.)
This year I have enjoyed making a range of pieces in mixed media, collage and pyrography. I have produced a range called 'Mehndipity' based on folk art, mehndi and henna designs. The drawings are intricate and are totally different to my loose style in acrylic painting.
I have a little studio in a great collective called FaMAS in Bolton. Our studios have a gallery area attached and two Open Studio events are sceduled annually - keep an eye out on my social media or sign up to the FaMAS newsletter.
