Julee creates paintings without brushes using paint that has dried before it is manipulated. The inherent flexibility in the unsupported material allows her to explore her interest in textile, collage, and sculptural techniques.
Intricately detailed works are the result of many hours of methodical cutting and layering. Ultimately, Julee’s core aim is to generate conversation about the nature of painting and to challenge expectations of what a painting can be.

"when the paint is dry my work is just beginning”


Moving internationally 12 times in a 17 year period has been instrumental in Julee’s desire to deconstruct and reinvent her work. Continually breaking ties and beginning again is a driving force in the way in which she handles the paint.

Julee's background in mosaic art and interior design can be seen in the meticulous nature of her work with paint and her choices of colour.

She holds a BFA (Sculpture and Painting major) from Curtin University, Perth as well as qualifications in Interior Design and Colour Psychology.
Julee has been a finalist in a number of prestigious Australian art prizes and she is also author of the book Sculptural Secrets for Mosaic (Schiffer Publishing Ltd, USA).

Recent public art acquisitions include Hotel Conrad Orchard, Singapore and Hotel Capella, Sydney.

Her work can be found across Australia as well as internationally.
