Julia Brownsword is a mixed media artist and takes the inspiration for her work from a passion ignited by the landscape in which she runs and cycles. The tranquillity of the countryside opens her eyes to the beauty, joy and freedom of nature. Ephemeral changes in light, subtle shadows and blocks of colour captivate her and she feels an unspoken energy. This feeling of well-being drives her creativity to draw, paint and stitch, embedding the emotional links she feels as she journeys through the landscape.
She composes 2D images of her journeys capturing the landscape by using an eclectic mix of textiles, paper, paint and stitchery and with computer technology designs fabric to make various products.
