I create radiant nature themed acrylic paintings that energise with their vibrancy and harmonise the environment.

The work may speak to your heart and soul; it may allow you to reminisce about the past or recall a special place you visited.

As a sensitive, sensory soul I connect with colour vibrations and patterns. Communicating from this zone, my work flows and ideas manifest; images, symbols and visions can stay with me for months, even years arising again and again, until I realise I simply have to draw or paint them. Once I get into the creative flow, it’s an all consuming experience where time does not exist and there is only the joy of being in the moment.

I have a love of pattern and often find myself drawing shapes and designs or whatever’s currently calling out to be expressed.
Ok….. I admit to being a lifetime spontaneous doodler! In between more intense works, I really let go and splash paint around; totally enjoying the fun and freedom of no rules.

Subjects can include: birds, marine life, ocean/water, flowers, plants, trees, landscapes
Styles: contemporary, still life, botanical, landscape, semi-abstract, abstract, visionary
Mediums: acrylic, texture, glaze, ink, marking pens, charcoal

Commissions Welcome  – Lets work together, I would love to create a painting that you can cherish and enjoy forever.


Julie is currently dividing time between Christies Beach on the Fleurieu coast of South Australia and Lota in bayside Brisbane, Queensland. Time spent on Kangaroo Island as a child instilled a love of the ocean and an appreciation for nature’s wild pristine beauty. Several years ago she decided to listen to the artist within and follow an instinctive yearning to paint big bright canvas’s and is delighted to be finally honouring her deepest calling.

Self taught creator from an early age
