Hello I’m Julia I initially trained as an illustrator and obtained a first class honours degree in Illustration. I illustrated numerous books and publications, including Alice in Wonderland for Octopus Books and Beauty & the Beast for Frederick Warne publishers.
I moved to Skye in 2013 to the village of Ardvasar where my mother grew up and where I spent many happy childhood holidays. My home and studio here on Skye provide the perfect inspiration with wonderful panoramic sea views across the sound of Sleat where I daily observe the natural dramas of the ever-changing weather and elusive ‘Skye light’. My passion is to capture and express the differing moods and atmosphere of the place.
Since moving to Skye I have felt inspired and set free to develop a new painting style, where the challenge is to capture and recreate the fleeting nuances of the forces of nature – sea, air and light. I am particularly fascinated by the light and how it plays on the sea and distant mountains, always surprising, and a never ending challenge to paint! I also run residential art retreats, details can be found on my website www.juliachristie.co.uk
