My inspiration is the Scottish landscape

The Artists bio

Julie Smith is best known for her strong, semi-abstract interpretations of the Scottish landscape. Julie works mainly in the medium of oil: vibrant colour, strong composition and heavy texture are all hallmarks of her work.

Born in Irvine, Ayrshire, Julie worked as a stained glass artist, eventually becoming a practical art tutor at the University of Glasgow’s Centre for Open Studies. Julie attended classes at Glasgow School of Art where she was tutored by the artist Conor Kelly.

Painting has become her main focus, with the Scottish landscape her inspiration: from the softly rolling farmland around her Ayrshire home, to the wild rugged edges of Orkney and the Outer Hebrides.
