Julie works with a great enthusiasm for capturing the landscape surrounding her, taking every oportunity to paint outdoors.

The Artists bio

Julie H Winter primarily creates form with a painting knife to achieve the textures of the natural environment. She loves to create images that evoke a passing breeze or a rolling wave. If you love the ever changing Ayrshire landscape come and visit Julie’s studio set among the rolling hills of Ayrshire where inspiration is in abundance.

Julie has been an OSA member from its conceptual year in 2013. She is always keen to share her painting skills with fellow artists and thoroughly enjoys demonstrations with her trusty painting knife. Now, Chair of OSA, Julie continues to offer support to the OSA members and has become a highly regarded public figure, in the art world. She is a member of the South Ayrshire Arts Partnership, where she sits on the governing board. Julie is also a member of the RGI supporting the arts in Scotland. Being selected to join The Glasgow Society of Women Artists back in 2009 was the catalyst for her career as an artist in Scotland, however she had a healthy appetite for painting throughout her teaching career in South Yorkshire; often exhibiting at The Great Sheffield Art Show.

Julie works with a great enthusiasm for capturing the landscape surrounding her. She lives within the hills of New Cumnock and is never short of inspiration. Many locals seek her out to paint family portraits and local landscapes. Although oil paints are her favourite, Julie gathers information in charcoal, ink pen and watercolour while out and about. Her recent travels have taken her to many iconic places including London, New York and Venice, where she was delighted to soak up the atmosphere and create many new works.

Julie’s artworks can be found in: The Wellington Gallery Kilmarnock, The Gallery Troon, and A’ the Airts in Sanquhar. In 2016 Julie joined three other artists in The Coach House Gallery/Studio at Culzean Castle, here she sold her work of the west coast of Scotland to people from all over the world.
