Mixed media Artist
Jules was involved in setting up and running a Maze studios and later joined Phoenix Brighton. In 1993 she obtained her MA in art psychotherapy. She has practised as an art psychotherapist in the NHS and prison service for over twenty years. Her dual practice as an artist and psychotherapist inform one and other, both reflect a passion for using art as a way of giving form to what is unformulated: expressing things that may feel impossible to put in to words.
Working on canvas Jules builds up each painting layer by layer using pencil drawing, oil paint, plaster, and stitching. She doesn’t set out with any fixed idea about what a finished painting will look like. The marks and forms emerge during the process of painting. Each piece has its own mood, energy and atmosphere. By tuning into the feeling of the painting she lets the painting develop over a period of time.
Her subject matter is often related to mortality, sexuality and the vulnerability of the human body. Although her work has a human presence the forms she uses are not human forms as such. They relate to the body rather that representing it directly. The forms are fragile or tough, are blurred or have edges, are separate or merged. Each painting establishes its own identity.
Jules’s work has been featured in a wide range of exhibitions in the UK and abroad and is held in private collections worldwide
