About The Artist

IMG_1515.jpg

As an Artist, Julz is drawn to the painterly tradition, focusing on the process of physically painting and where it takes her work. She is energetic and frantic as she works, the finished texture reveals this with her thickly applied paint. 
This process however is not only limited to mixing or pushing and the final application of the paint but the ‘bigger' whole practice of being ‘Plein air’. For Julz walking into or boating towards the destination all becomes part of the process. Her pre-sketches, drawings chosen subject, living it, breathing it and experiencing it in all weather. Julz's current work is based on the Hawkesbury River and Sydney Coast line where she gathers memories and information then returns to her studio to apply these experiences to the canvas.

Julz Beresford

Artist

Julz’s intent is for the audience to feel engaged with the energy of the landscape. Her works are both an expressive piece of the whole process, and an embodiment of how it actually feels to be there. 

Her paintings have a sense of intense energy. She paints ‘Alla prima’ with a vigorous and spirited application.
