"I am an artist living and working in London. I studied in South Africa and did a BA Fine Art Degree at Michaelis, University of Cape Town. I work primarily with paint. I am fascinated by colour and the different atmospheres that they create. I'm concerned with femininity, the representation of…Show more woman and the capturing of the emotional moment. As a mother of two daughters, I see in the feminine form the woman I am, was and they will become. I paint people in intimate moments, unguarded as people are at their most vulnerable. Identity is withheld, eyes often hidden and yet emotion still felt. My muted tones speak of these stolen quiet reflective times - a momentary respite in our busy lives." - Julia BlackshawShow less
"Although these works, at first, may seem quite muted with their minimal backgrounds and hidden facial features, we quickly realise that many of them capture an intense, often emotional moment. As the viewer, we are invited to observe these private moments from the outside and use our imagination. "
