Previous study at The Falmouth School of Art motivated Julia to return to Cornwall in 2005 inspiring her body of work combining local landscape with structural industrial forms. From her experience as a carer Julia conceived her internationally recognised Arts and health courses delivering motivational colour workshops to socially isolated community groups.
Selected for The Battle Contemporary Fine Art Fair 2010, she was awarded ‘Best Painting’. This selected exhibition had an esteemed board of judges chaired by CAV OMRI Romeo Di Girolamo PPRBA, supported by Megan Di Girolamo RBA RBS and Guy Portelli VPRBA RBS and for the judging, Polly Gifford, Head of Education at the iconic De La Warr Pavilion.
She takes her passion for community involvement further by delivering her ‘Expressive use of colour’ courses.
She also continues to teach and exhibit in UK and Europe.
