Trained in graphic design, Julia says “a scratch a designer and you’ll find an artist underneath”.

Her passion for portraiture has led to numerous commissions, which are her focus. She lives in the Interlake Region of Manitoba, Canada. Her nomadic life has led her from the United Kingdom to East Africa and finally to Canada. Sampling the provinces of Ontario, then Saskatchewan and finally Manitoba. There is a solitude and spaciousness to her prairie surroundings that speak in her art.

Her work is in private collections in the UK, USA and Canada. Manitoba Hydro’s Head Office in Winnipeg has several of her paintings in their corporate collection.
