Artist of the Month

Julie Driscoll

“Living in Suffolk my subjects are often related to the beautiful local landscapes that surround me, particularly water-based areas such as reeds and rivers. Although each picture evolves during the painting process perhaps leaving only a figment of the original image. The vast Suffolk skies are often a main feature in my pictures as these are an important feature in this local landscape. Some examples of my work include: Iken Church, Bawdsey and the River Deben, at Woodbridge.

Having studied “A” Level Art, I then did a BSc and Diploma in Occupational Therapy and have used art as a creative and therapeutic tool for many years in England and abroad.

Much of my work is carried out with a palette knife using a technique called ‘impasto’. I have experimented with a variety of media although at present I am enjoying the freedom and thickness of oil paints. Usually, I tend to use a limited range of colours preferring to mix my own and adjusting this on the canvas as my work evolves.”
