Julia Abbey

Born in South Africa, Julia was later schooled in both England and Germany. She has travelled extensively, drawing inspiration from many of the places she has lived in and visited. Julia came to Australia first as a backpacker and later to reside in Bowral NSW in 1998. She has two grown up children who are her biggest supporters.

As a primary school teacher Julia has always admired the naivety of children’s work, their lack of inhibition and bold choice of colours. Some of this is reflected in her work.

Having grown up mainly in the UK, Julia is still in awe of the beauty of nature in Australia. Native birds and flowers are a focus in her paintings along with a pop of colour and a touch of vintage.

A self-taught artist, Julia just loves to paint everyday scenes which evoke a moment, whether that’s sitting down for a cool drink on a warm afternoon or hanging up the gloves after a day of gardening. Julia paints scenes which make her happy and her paintings are intended to bring joy!

Julia is keen to explore original art for nurseries and you will encounter a few whimsical and cute creatures she has painted for this purpose.

Julia paints in acrylic on canvas and the art is framed in a Tasmanian Oak box frame. As her career as a teacher draws to a close, Julia would love to open the door to more painting.
