Julie studied art and textiles locally and with Opus Textile School London and Middlesex University gaining BA Hons in Embroidery and Mixed Media in 2010. She has exhibited with selected artists at The Mall Gallery, London, Whitstable and Harrogate, as a member of international Textile group “Prism” founded by Julia Caprara.
The passing of time and the ability of cloth to hold memory and personal histories is a recurring theme. Julie’s work develops fragility and loss. With hand stitching, patching and repairing surfaces an appreciation of the worn and cherished in cloth and clothing is evident. Delicate and fragile pieces are created in silks, dyed and artificially worn then rebuilt with the special closeness of hand stitching.
