Original mixed media painting in ink, bleach, pastel and acrylic on paper.

"Nature, in particular the forest, has been a significant source of inspiration and recurring theme within my work. I am interested in the use of the forest as a metaphor within art, film and literature, especially folk-tales and mythology. The mystery and allure of the woods is ever present. In today's society of pervasive technology, a desire to 'return to nature' is commonplace. I aim to capture a lived experience of the landscape; an idiosyncratic - emotional - response, in opposition to the homogeneous, filtered images of a life observed through screens."


Julie-Ann Simpson

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.
