I love using saturated colours or simple black and white: colour conveys emotions, reactions, tensions, moments in time that are experienced but not seen. Using line for life drawing lets me practice optimum co-ordination between eye and hand, free from thought expressed in words, allowing for a universal language.

From paintings of the English coast, to Lake Michigan in Chicago, to Venice, my paintings transform actual places into simplified visions of the very element that defines them – water. Abstractions of weather and season at the sea, the paintings are all about spaces of line, colour and light rather than direct landscape. A fascination with light and shadow, reflection and refraction, pattern and water movement drives my experiments with paint to capture changing luminous qualities. I was born in 1970 in Chicago, USA and immigrated to the UK in my early 20s. I started painting after moving from Scotland down to London, studying painting and printmaking privately with an artist in Greenwich, London. Despite identifying very much as a British artist it's been said my paintings still recall a certain "midwestern" eye for the landscape, inferring flat perspective and vast open spaces.

I am a self taught painter. My work focuses on aviation, specifically WWII aircraft. My interest is creating pieces that focus on the esthetics of the aircraft and not placing them in a wartime context. In my newer work I am interested in the human connection between 'man and machine'.

An artist born in England in 1975, Julia began her artistic training under the guidance of her father, the painter Raymond Victor Mee. After attaining a diploma in Art and Design at Staffordshire University, a bachelor’s degree in History of Art and a Masters degree in History of Drawing at the University of Reading, she moved to Italy to continue her passion for art, enrolling at the Accademia delle Belle Arti in Florence to further her knowledge and expertise in the traditions of the past, including fine draughtsmanship and a complete understanding of the human anatomy which she regards as fundamental to the development of her figurative painting. During this period she developed her skills in traditional painting techniques, notably in fresco painting. Her interest in contemporary realist art, and in encapturing human experiences on canvas is conveyed throughout her work.

My artworks cover a wide variety of subject, media and styles. I began with figurative drawings and spray paintings that developed into abstraction and textured interior artworks. More recently I have produced a series of scenic landscapes in greyscale aswell as autumn colour scheme. I like to think of my art in a state of evolution and a learning curve that is constantly progressing.
