Maker of traditional and contemporary straw work influenced by the wheel of the year, folklore and nature.
Julia studied Applied Arts (Craft) at Brighton University working mainly with glass, metal and ceramic. A keen interest in nature and traditional celebration and a want for a less environmentally impactful medium led her to start working with straw. Her work predominantly relates to nature and the renewal of life and is heavily influenced by ritual celebrations of British and native culture. Costume and performance art also have a strong link to her work.
