A report by Mike Gallagher

To celebrate the diversity and beauty of the canal, Stroud artist Julia Christie B.A. and her group known as ‘Julia Christie’s Garden Studio Painters’ are to hold an exhibition of their work at the Cotswold Canals Trust Visitor Centre, Wallbridge.

Examples of this high quality collection can be seen below.

The exhibition will run from 2nd July to 5th August 2011.

Julia started life as an illustrator and attained a first class honours degree in fine art.

She has worked as an illustrator on a number of books and currently has a teaching practice working from her Garden Studio in Bisley Road, Stroud.

Julia, pictured left, explains…

"I have recently branched out into larger more expressive works.

I now explore colour. I love the risk involved in its application”.
