Mixed media paintings, colour and texture, still life and landscapes
Jon uses traditional and modern calligraphy and lettering to create a strong visual style. Commissions accepted for personalised items.
Julie Harding uses oils, mixed media and acrylics to create abstract and expressive works.
My style of painting is influenced by a formal training in Advertising and Design.
I use layers of colour and texture to create atmosphere within urban themes, creating a semi abstract interest.
Research and creativity comes from my love of experimenting with a variety of media.
Sharing ideas and techniques in groups of like-minded people such as the Herts Visual Arts is very rewarding.
I have always been drawn to fabric and thread. I studied Textiles at City and Guild level. I have become increasingly interested in resist techniques taking the form of Batik - Shibori- Screen-Printing. Appling them in a Mixed Media approach. Further enhancing them with stitch. Using as many artists the natural environment and form as inspiration.
My work is about colour, Narrative. Its quirky, as I am. I will paint and create whatever takes my fancy. I love a challenge whether it's painting, Acting, or as a musician. So any commissions are always welcome.
