This clay collage acrylic on canvas board painting is of the row of waterfront houses along the Fowey esplanade. The boats are moored outside with tiny steps leading down to the jetty. This detailed observation includes clay lobster pots and rowing boats which adds to the three dimensional effect of the painting. It captures the essence of Fowey, which is a beautiful historic harbour town renowned for its annual regatta and boating history. The blues are reminiscent of Cornishware.
This artwork is sold in a white wooden contemporary frame measuring 4cm wide.

Julie is a well known professional artist and tutor who studied Combined Craft Design at South Bank University and Advanced Ceramics and Painting at Kingston College.
Her inspiration comes from her love of landscapes and coastal harbours. Her work is bright and bold and has a naivety that makes you want to smile. She has an intuitive use of colour and uses it to create work that gives an emotional response to a place. The harbour scenes create a feeling of homecoming and have a certain nostalgia.
Julie is really interested in surface texture and works in mixed media. She works in a unique way using clay and fabrics to create collage paintings. The compositions are over painted using acrylics and glazes which gives vibrancy to the work.
Julie uses clay in her work to bring the subject to life, to make the painting tactile and much more than a 2-dimensional object.
Julie’s unique clay paintings can be found in galleries throughout England. She also works on private commissions for corporate and private collectors.
