Julie Jenner is an artist who adopts semi-abstract and expressionist approaches to her work. Although landscapes are her primary interest, her oil paintings also explore the connection and relationship between natural and architectural shapes.
She has written of her work:
I like landscapes working spontaneously from collected images and memories, portraying their constantly changing natures, which I paint with an ambiguity suggesting both representation and abstraction, but always the relationship between colour and form is paramount … I take my inspiration from the colours of the landscape whilst the influences of Constable’s oil sketches, Augustus John and Piper and guide my thinking and my hand.
Julie’s paintings have been exhibited around the Yorkshire region, including the Calder Gallery at Hebden Bridge, Weaverbird and the Art Shop, both in Ilkley, and as part of the Ilkley Art Trail. She lives at Addingham.
