The Milford on Sea Art Scene

Julie moved to Milford on Sea in 2014, and is inspired by the wonderful Hampshire coast line, translating it into ‘abstractions of reality'. She is fascinated by the feel of the landscape and always works in series, her studio becoming a three-dimensional ‘sketchbook’ of ideas and experiments. Julie works with water- based paints, building layers of intrigue into her work, each piece taking a long time to complete.

In contrast to these evocative ‘abstractions of reality’, Julie also loves to make lively line drawings that she develops into the contemporary prints that so caught our eye.
