"I have been using a boat motif as a symbol of movement, transformation and freedom. In some ways, I am tapping into a personal mythology suggesting the celestial and dreamlike, whilst also alluding to traditional fairy tales, fantasy literature and nursery rhymes."
Julie-Ann is making a significant impression on the emerging art world. Shortly after graduating in 2015, she won The RSA Guthrie Award and Medal for an outstanding painting by a Scottish artist under 35. She has exhibited regularly since then - being shortlisted for a number of competitions and awards.
Julie Ann Simpson is an artist inspired by the senses, evoking harmonic rhythm, recent memory, absence surrounded by presence, the abstracted forms act as a series of random echoes, with the resultant canvases blurring the mark between a reminiscent dream or the experienced actuality.
