  • Julie, you have the superb combination of being an outstanding artist, a wonderful teacher and also a delightfully kind and fun person.      Ann
  • Thank you for all the hard work entailed in keeping the art classes going this year which definitely helped me get through the lockdown and learn new skills.         Phillipa
  • I am really enjoying the lessons and I loved learning about grasses and textures. Julie thank you for all the wonderful work you have given us this
    year. You are inspirational, and a joy to work with.           Lorraine
  • I was very impressed with the way Julie taught watercolour which I have found in the past very difficult and a bit of a mystery. I found your demonstrations very informative. I think I could use your technique. En plein air the 3 who attempted watercolour had great results, Well done.    Ainslie
  • The thing I liked the most, was the quality of your art and teaching. I feel that I learnt heaps while also having fun. Ann
