I have known Julie-anne professionally as an artist for five years and admire the integrity and constancy of her commitment to her practice and the acute sensitivity of her interpretations of landscape and the elements of nature.


Julie-anne has a deep attachment to the subject of landscape, there are parallel influences in her work from the nineteenth century English realist and romantic traditions, (Cozens, Turner, Whistler), the French impressionists, (especially Monet) and the traditions of both European and indigenous Australians. Nevertheless Julie-annes' work is more metaphysical than physical, she aspires to the elemental and engages concerns with light, colour, space and the infinite. A spirituality of space appears to underscore her paintings which either in their intimacy or in panoramic sequence can obtain a beautiful and authorative presence.
