Julie Vatcher Fluid Artit


Artists Statement

Julie is an artist based in Poole, Dorset. Her paintings flow with the seasons and depict landscapes, seascapes and wild flowers. Julie uses a combination of techniques, including fluid art and brush work, drawing inspiration from the wonderful area in which she lives, from the seashore to the soft rolling hills that surround Dorset.

Her art conveys a calmness and whilst fluid art is often abstract, Julie uses various techniques to achieve wonderful effects, working with the shapes and patterns this creates, she uses brushes to add depth and detail, transforming it into a landscape or seascape.

Julie has always been drawn to creativity, as soon as she could pick up a pencil and began to draw. She studied art and graphics in the late 1980’s, in the days of drawing boards and thick Pantone markers, conveying an idea onto paper was manditory. Drawing, understanding colour, composition, typography, photography and print have been the foundation of her career as an artist.
