Meet The Team
Julia and Dave live on The Isle of Wight where the surrounding landscape inspires many of Julias paintings.
As well as Art, Julia also studied interior design for a number of years which gave her a fabulous background in composition and colour, she became a Professional Artist in 2010.
She is a Professional Associate of The SAA – www.saa.co.uk – and has written two articles for their magazine ‘Paint’, also being a brand ambassador for Pebeo paint on their behalf. Three of her paintings were shortlisted for a Pebeo Mixed Media competition resulting in an exhibition at The A & D Gallery in Marylebone. She was delighted to have artworks displayed and sold in The Oxo Tower Wharf Gallery as part of ’The Letter in Mind’ exhibition for The National Brain Charity, a cause close to her heart.
Her style has developed to exploit the properties of the paint resulting in a slightly surreal and abstract way of painting. Her sports paintings evolved from a childhood love of horses and from watching ‘Le Tour de France’ on television whilst expecting her Daughter.
Dave spent several years running a Landscape Gardening Business which enabled him to combine his love of the outdoors with a design element. His earlier love of Photography was rekindled by the desire to capture what he was creating so he moved on from 35mm to the new world of digital. He spent several years with photography groups, galleries and printers curating exhibitions whilst also working in Partnership with Julia to create artwork displays at their shows.
He now works exclusively in conjunction with Julia to create Fine Art Gallery Prints from her paintings, ensuring perfect colour matches and using the best quality photographic papers and inks available.
Together they exhibit their work at shows where they love to meet customers both old and new.
Julia Introduces The Entertainment Department……….
Living on The Isle of Wight means that all our squirrels are the very cute reds. We are so lucky to have them visiting our garden (the £40 nut order probably helps!) where they provide us with endless entertainment. If you Subscribe to our newsletter you’ll be able to read about what they have been up to. We sometimes also have squirrel photography and paintings for sale, keep an eye on the Special Editions section of the website.
