Artist Julie Campbell works from her garden studio on the Wirral. Her love of drawing has been with her since childhood when she would spend many hours drawing the human form. She graduated with a BA(Hons) Fine Art after a return to university as an adult student. This move was prompted because of the effect she noticed that art had in a voluntary art group initialised for those dealing with addiction. Before long she had left her permanent job and began a new adventure. This journey not only honed her skills in art but taught her a lot about herself. It is this learning that has become part of her intuitive response to the world around her. The artwork she creates is an eclectic mix of paintings and drawings. Gaining inspiration mainly from nature and everyday life, her works of art are often full of energy and strong mark making. She enjoys being playful with a range of media which is chosen as the painting resolves itself. Constantly experimenting and allowing her work to evolve the artist spends as much time as she can in her studio with her faithful lurcher for company listening to the music of Scottish artists. This music touched her deeply after several visits to The Highlands, a place that still inspires her work. Her biggest weakness is copious amounts of coffee with the obligatory chocolate biscuit!
