Originally from Newcastle, Julie is now resident artist at the Gasworks Art Park in Albert Park, Melbourne. Specialising in steel fabrication and bronze cast sculpture, her work has proved both popular and accessible to the public. Newcastle Port Authority has gifted her major bronze sculpture Destiny to seaports in China as
an acknowledgement of the two nation’s friendship.
In 2004 - 2005, after a speaking tour of Russia, UK, USA and Canada, Julie managed the building and installation of the Australian Pavilion at the World Expo in Japan.
After finishing work as a Creative Director of Indigenous Art on the Australian Pavilion at the 2010 Shanghai World Expo, Julie was selected to represent Australia at the Shanghai Biennale in China. Julie’s work with indigenous communities surrounding Alice Springs is a further testament to her abilities to coordinate and manage complex art projects.
Julie’s body of work includes 20 Public Art Commissions in Australia and pieces are held in collections in Australia, Europe, China and the United Kingdom.
