About Julie

Working mainly in Pastel I have been drawing since old enough to hold a pencil.

Animals have always held a special place in my heart; dogs, cats, budgies and horses have all been a part of our household.

Being able to create a painting that captures the character of an individual animal is always a joy for me, particularly if it is a cherished pet. To see a portrait of a treasured canine, feline, equine or any animal member of one’s family always brings pleasure to their owners, often with tears of happiness. This certainly makes it worth the extra time and effort it takes me to get a really good likeness.

Domestic, native and exotic animals & birds are all favourite subjects for me when not engaged in a commissioned Pet Portrait. Living in Loxton in the Riverland South Australia, I am surrounded by inspiration, vines and orchards as well as native bushland teeming with birds of many kinds and the River Murray.

Please peruse my galleries which show the sort of paintings I do.

If you are interested in purchasing any of the paintings that have not been sold, or would like to discuss the possibility of commissioning a portrait of a special pet or favourite animal please contact me. If in the Riverland please give me a call to arrange a time to visit my studio, a good chance to see some of my work ‘in the flesh’.
