I produce mixed media pieces based around punk and new wave music and iconic images from the golden age of cinema. My techniques include a combination gel transfer, collage, acrylic, inks, and spray paint. I build layers of colour and texture and use cuttings from vintage music press papers and film magazines.

Using the sewing machine as a tool for continuous line drawing, my work explores
movement and texture with often unpredictable outcomes, which have been likened to
ink illustration. Julie's work focuses on the wild side of nature, dance and motion. Each piece is unique and one off.
The speed and capricious nature of the sewing machine, when used in this unconventional way reflects characteristics of the subjects.
Using reclaimed fabric, paper and handmade felt opens new opportunities to discover how the stitched marks respond to different surfaces, pulling or embossing a piece of work in sympathy with the surface.
Threads are purposely left loose over or around the image to allow the illusion of more depth and movement.
