"The contrast between bleak anonymous rows of houses and cheerfully unaware cherry blossom in ‘Blossoms in my Street’ immediately caught my eye. Even before I read Juli’s own words, I related to the painting on a personal level.
Throughout lockdown I have kept a diary, weaving vibrant photographs from my county walks through the depressing anonymity of Covid figures, the statistics that reduce our loved ones to a list of daily mortality rates. The result mirrors Juli’s painting: a striking dichotomy: the beauty of nature sustains us; no matter how bleak things get behind closed doors, spring blossom will always give us hope, they put a smile on our faces and a song in our hearts!
The trees in ‘Blossoms in my Street’ are so full of colour and hope, I often find myself just sitting smiling at them. Juli’s, almost pointillist, technique creates a real sense of movement, as multicoloured petals flutter down like confetti, warming the bleak houses from the outside in. "
Darling Holkham, 2019
"I am the very fortunate and proud owner of one of Juli's original paintings. It is of Holkham beach. I was immediately drawn to the beautiful blue and pink hues. It is such a calming and inspirational piece for me, that I have been known to move it from room to room with me. Absolutely love your work!"
