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 or an intimate street scene. If you love the ever changing Ayrshire landscape come and visit Julie’s studio set amongs the rolling hills of Ayrshire where inspiration is in abundance.
This year Julie will be opening up her B&B for visitors to see her original works throughout the building. Her studio space is found in the B&B Breakfast Room! It is the epicentre of her life in Scotland, which OSA Visitors and B&B Visitors thoroughly enjoy.
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. .
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.
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, Venice and Barcelona, 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.
