About Julie Nash

I strive to make art that connects with the viewer. When a piece evokes feelings, memories or emotions there‘s a kind of alchemy that brings it to life. You can sense it has its own personality.
The natural world is endlessly fascinating, so my subjects vary. Animal, people, landscape and still-life genre all appeal to me. They have their own particular challenges and rewards and Inspiration can come from many sources.
I’m interested in the way light affects the subject. Reflected light I find especially attractive, how it throws up unexpected colours and illuminates the dark side. It’s kind of ephemeral and subtle, giving extra dimension to the subject.
I want to capture the personality, the moment, expression or feel of the subject.
When I look at art, if it looks back at me, it draws me in for a closer look. I want to feel the impact of that first impression, then enjoy the finer details and subtle nuances of the work as my eyes are led around the painting.
So when doing my own work, I’m always aiming for something with enough depth to call to you across a room, but still has enough substance and life when seen close to. When all this comes together it’s magic and you wonder how you managed to pull it off.
