Original Art by Julia Everett
“My paintings are expressive colourful abstract landscapes. I am moved by the sky and sea and am trying to capture the uplifting feelings one can experience from being in a wild and dramatic landscape or watching the sunset into the sea.
I am inspired by the British landscape, particularly the west of England and its coastline. My paintings are concerned with the personal reflective aspects of natural beauty as realised in water, landscape, light and pure colour. Each painting is an emotional response to a sensory experience and an attempt to evoke a fleeting visual reference to something that is essentially ethereal.
I always listen to music when painting and feel that this has a strong influence on the finished work. Many of my paintings are named from song titles and lyrics.”
