Julia was brought up and educated in Pontardawe, South Wales. As a child, she spent most of her time with her grandparents on their farm. These were very happy times: looking after the animals; collecting wild mushrooms with her grandmother; and walking the fields with her grandfather (no doubt being more of a hindrance than a help at harvest time). "I've been told that I possess an ability to adapt to all the mediums that I use, including watercolour, acrylic, oils and pastels," she says. "I really enjoy watercolour as it’s such a temperamental medium. I use a lot of water and push it around the paper until I get the effect or atmospheric feeling I want. I love acrylics, too. There is nothing I enjoy more than using a palette knife to paint with, to build up a picture in texture, as I am a very tactile person."
