Julie Lawrence is a contemporary landscape painter living in the Northwest of England.  Rooted in the painting language of Romanticism, she responds to transient and incidental moments of light and atmosphere while on a simple daily walk towards her local coastline.

Her work occupies two strands, which begins with her 'walking' series of pastel drawings. These respond to shifting momentary perceptions, revealing a transitional, ambiguous figure moving through space -an unresolved tension within the landscape which evokes the fleeting mixture of memory and perception.

The second strand manifests in oil paintings, capturing the transient light, atmosphere and nuances of colour experienced through stillness at the end of her walk. Bordering the threshold between reflective memory and the unknown, her work  strives to invite the viewer into a quiet psychological territory and an inner sense of place and time.
