ABOUT

 

"Art is my true passion! I love my other work but drawing and painting allows me to explore my creative side. I enjoy doing both as it brings a varied (if not a little hectic!) lifestyle!!

 

Julie is a self taught artist. "I have been drawing and painting all my life. I began professionally face and body painting about 10 years ago and in addition to numerous events and parties, I have worked at at Paradise Wildlife Park in Hertfordshire and provided face painting for actress Natalie Cassidy (Eastenders) at her baby shower which was filmed for an E4 documentary and featured in OK magazine".

 Julie is also a Registered Nurse and works as a Nurse Practitioner at Colchester Walk in Centre and Clacton Minor Injuries Unit. She has also worked in television for the BBC as a Medical Advisor on two drama series: Holby City and Silent Witness.

In more recent years, Julie has begun taking commissions for portraiture and fine art painting, working from a home studio.
