Jules is a contemporary landscape painter living in Western Australia. Drawing inspiration from her previous farming life, journeys through the outback, overseas travel and the splendour of nature all around her. Current works are inspired by a solo journey through the Pilbara and Kimberley of Western Australia in 2021, and travelling through the Scottish Highlands and the Isle of Skye in 2022.Jules predominantly works in acrylics and enjoys the process of mark making in many forms. Her work often features spatial definition marks by way of scratching back into the surface of the paint. Jules’ work is created by building of layers of thin paint and glazes, allowing the base layers to show through and creating a depth of field. While strongly inspired by nature, paintings will often develop in an amalgamation of the figurative and the abstract, creating a piece that crosses between the real and the imagined. Her process is to allow each piece to develop intuitively as the work flows onto the canvas. While referring to images to revisit a feeling, a place, a light or a captured detail, the work is then unplanned, with composition and palette evolving as the work is being created.
