Julie Harris is an abstract painter working mainly with acrylic, collage and mixed media.
Drawing inspiration from happy beautiful messes, color impressions, and found moments of unexpected beauty that can easily be missed if not paying attention!
Spending time in the south of France as well as her background in fashion and clothing design has greatly influenced her use of color and her vocabulary of shapes.
Her artwork reveals an integration of playfulness with quiet reflection, and is always trying to balance the tension between beauty and edgyness.
"My paintings begin with a mood or feelings rather than thoughts or ideas. My artistic process mirrors my life experience: with an underlying conversation about identity and consciousness."
