29 September- 08 November Long Gallery
Julia's fascination with life drawing started as an 'A' level student under the tuition of John Eaves. She is concerned with intuitive mark-making from observation and the exploration of the visual elements of line, tone and colour. She uses Indian ink applied with sticks and large brushes for washes. This unpredictable technique keeps the drawings loose and free, capturing the effects of light, shade and form.
31 August - 1 October, Cafe Gallery

29 September to 11 October
