The Artist Says:

"if one knows exactly what one is going to do, what good is it to it? Because one knows it, it is of no interest. It is better to do something else" Pablo Picasso


Julia lives and works on the East Coast of South Africa. Her work captures the diversity of life parallel to the Indian Ocean in a country known for its contrasts of mountains and sea; rural and urban life; unique flora and abundant wildlife.

Through colour , line and mark-making, her works capture those unique moments of life - children at play, the Fish Eagle pulling awkwardly out of a dive, the stoop of women harvesting. Expect the unexpected - vibrant colours capture the aggression and playfulness of the pronking wildebeest. She reveals the smell and energy of flowers not only their physical beauty.

Never conventional and constantly experimenting with new mediums and subjects, the loose energy of Julia’s paintings never fail to draw attention and lift the spirits.

Her style can be summed up simply
No contrast, no drama!
