Julie Vernon is an award winning artist producing contemporary mosaic artwork and sculpture. She established her practice in 2010 following a successful career in marketing and taking time out to raise a family. She works on a range of private and public commissions, gets involved in schools and community arts projects and runs a successful programme of workshops from her Edwalton studio.
JULIE VERNON – STUDIO
Initially I started working around the kitchen table but as commissions grew larger in size I converted my garden garage into a light and airy studio with a vaulted ceiling, velux windows and wide French doors. I really appreciate my studio space, being able to leave materials out and projects in progress.
JULIE VERNON – WORK
I’m largely inspired by nature, the textures and colours of the changing landscape. I like to work in an abstract style creating patterns and movement within my work and building the design as I go along. I combine a wide mix of materials from natural marble and slate through to glass, ceramic and vintage porcelain finds. Every artwork is original and can never be repeated exactly.
If you are interested in this work, please contact the artist directly through the links above.
