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.
