Making Marks

 

Julia Cooper’s paintings are made up of layers of pigment and brush marks where she discovers the content of the painting through the process. Sketch books are filled with abstract drawings which describe the coastline of weed strewn rocks, granite harbours and stormy weather. Julia is attracted to the greys of raw, coastal elements and a sense of coastal living through colour.

 

Julia studied Fine Art and Interior Design and has lived in Cornwall for nearly thirty years. She paints in her studio on the south coast, which looks out across the beautiful harbour of Fowey and rugged cliffs. She has worked with The Cornwall National Trust on their holiday cottage refurbishment programme on Design and Specification.
