Julie Davis graduated from Aberystwyth School of Art with a Masters in Art and Art History. She has exhibited in the UK and Europe, and up until recently she also taught drawing and painting for the Open College of the Arts. Julie has completed a number of notable commissions in portraiture and was selected for the Wales Portrait Award in 2008.
Using traditional painting techniques, she is primarily a figurative/portrait artist. Despite this her subject matter and style can be eclectic. As well as human subjects, she enjoys producing ‘portraits’ of objects and creatures that are often overlooked, but which might hold appeal by being the subject of emotion, memory and nostalgia. Julie usually works in oil paint on board but also enjoys exploring the interaction between surface and background and experimenting with mixed media.
