Julie's current artistic projections are tied to cartography, photography and historical analysis, which she then translates to hand drawings with mixed media, including ink, graphite and watercolour on paper and boards. Currently working with historic documents, her drawings are investigating the relationships of Rivers and Cities through Time.

`Part of why I paint, why I draw, is to get a sense of belonging to nature and the built environment. The flow of the natural world, understanding it, and living it, is not an easy thing to do.`
