Julie’s fascination with cats began some years ago when, as a member of the Hilliard Society of Miniaturists, she was asked to paint a cat portrait. In time the Society (HSM) nicknamed her ‘The Cat Lady’.
Her associate membership (ARMS) of the Royal Miniature Society and of the Hilliard Society (HSM) led to six of her cat paintings being exhibited in ‘ A Million Brushstrokes’ at London’s prestigious Llewellyn Alexander Gallery, and membership of SOFA followed. She now paints and draws to A3 size whilst still giving great attention to detail.
Living and working in inspirational Cornwall, her birthplace, Julie lives along with her beloved ginger moggie Flossie, who has starred many times in her artworks for Hockin and Roberts Ltd.
She is a member of the United Kingdom Coloured Pencil Society, the SAA, exhibits regularly, holds Drawing for the Doubtful and Painting for the Petrified workshops, and accepts commissions.
