I came across Julie's work this year and love her style! Here's a little more about her below:
Materials used in the work predominately come from her large collection of fabrics collected over the years with cherished scraps often being incorporated into the designs. Recycled fragments of commercial and vintage fabrics are over dyed by hand to create a soft, faded, and comfortable to touch fabric with a sense of nostalgia. The look is endearingly charming with a fairy tale quality.
“I see my work as a narrative art form that satisfies my creative desire for storytelling. Since childhood I have been fascinated by the Welsh storytelling tradition, legends, tales of old magic and stories of Merlin and King Arthur. My aim is to be a storyteller in the best tradition of Folk Artists”. Julie's illustrations are becoming increasing sought after with many of her original works now in private collections.
