Painting the places that you love...

Welcome! If you are a lover of the great outdoors, particularly in Devon, why not have a look at my gallery pages here at to see if I have captured something of the places you love.


For an insight into artist life, see paintings on-location and behind the scenes snippets on Instagram.  See something there that's not in the galleries page yet? Message me!

Living in Devon it is easy to be inspired by the countryside, moors, coast and sky. Painting outside on location "en plein air" when the light, weather and even the subject is changing is a challenge that I love and one that helps to create paintings that I hope are atmospheric, authentic and evocative. 

If you'd like to join me in a plein air workshop here in Devon I enjoy giving others confidence to find their unique artistic voice outdoors, so contact me for details. 



Bespoke En Plein Air Workshops

"I've attempted plein air painting on quite a few occasions over the last few years but always seemed to get myself in a dreadful muddle...I always thought there must be an easier way to do this so booked a day with Julie so I could learn from an expert. I certainly learned loads!

"From equipment, set up, useful phone apps, scene composition, focal points, tonal values, things I simply forgot in rush to complete a painting outdoors. I highly recommend a workshop with Julie. Book one and you won't be disappointed”

Would your art group or society like to see how I paint?

Working in oils, I can offer a 2 hour demonstration of painting alla prima landscapes, offering a great insight into the techniques I employ outside en plein air.

"Both your demonstration and day workshop were a great success and enjoyed by all. We highly recommend booking Julie for your Art Group" Teignmouth Art Society
