Julie is an artist exploring mediums such as mixed media, collage, printmaking, mosaic and watercolours. She also operates under the business name Fickle Nellie.
Julie often finds herself searching for early 20th-century design pieces that have a strong connection to her childhood memories of her grandmothers. She is drawn to imagery of women from the early to mid-20th century as the style of these eras was strong and distinct, with clean lines and elegance in design.
A big part of Julie’s artistic process is collecting and categorising objects that form a basis for her works. Traces of these objects come through in Julie’s work of collage, printmaking process, specifically monoprints.
“I have an intuitive process and a fascination with the aesthetic and tactility of vintage jewellery and design. This yearning is for a time when there was more attention to detail in design, craftsmanship, beauty and sustainability, which contrasts to the mass production of cheaply made disposable items in modern society.
The combination of my experience as a woman and the relationships that I have experienced collide with my inspiration from vibrant colours and unique patterns, resulting in a merging of these influences in my works.”
