Inspiration comes from sails of the boats and working boats moored along the waterfront houses of Polruan near Fowey. This clay collage on canvas of this ancient fishing village has a long history of boat building. The detailed maritime scene is a quirky representation of harbour houses and boats and has a naivety that makes you want to smile.
The artwork is sold in a white wooden contemporary float frame measuring 3cm 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.
