Artist's Profile

Julie KingJulie grew up in England where she graduated from Leeds University with a BA in Textile Design. She worked in London for several years as a designer and colourist, before moving to a small island in the Caribbean with her husband. There she found another outlet for her creativity and began painting seascapes in oil pastel, inspired by the tropical waters.

A move to Vancouver Island in 2002 brought fresh inspiration and an exploration of new mediums; Julie now works in acrylics and watercolours, building up layers of texture and colour to achieve the desired effect.
