Julie's unique teaching style
Julie exhibits her work in galleries in London, Sussex, Dublin and Galway. Her favourite subjects are people and animals, and she regularly accepts portrait commissions. She really loves drawing and thrives on encouraging others to learn, to pick up her enthusiasm and feel inspired. She took up teaching because so many people approached her for advice. A student described her as 'the ultimate motivator'. You will find, after attending her classes that no other tutor will do.
