Julia describes her work, ‘My practice revolves around drawing, etching extends that practice. Larger developed works on paper refer to sketchbook records; ancient sculpture; eccentric characters from paintings, folk art; and horses. These works are sometimes metaphorical and sometimes autobiographical. Influences- Goya, George Grosz, Ana Maria Pacheco, Paula Rego. Documentary drawing/reportage is a major activity.’
