Julie Collins

Julie Collins was born in the Isle of Man in 1962. After studying Fine Art at the University of Reading from 1980 to 1984 she has travelled, made art, written and taught. Julie works from her studio at the Farnham Maltings in Surrey where she explores her passion for painting, drawing and making. The mixed media paintings are 'abstractions' from real life, where Julie explores the relationship between recognisable forms and the open ended process of creating.

"Julie's loose understated use of colour and form enhances a depth of tone and texture within the surface of her work. Using mixed media and handmade paper she produces work in a series creating delicate images which have an overriding sense of calm." Sarah Wiseman, Oxford 2011
