Julie Whitehead – Inspired by Art & Flowers.
I have always had a love of art; it’s been woven like a tapestry throughout my life. Growing up surrounded by beautiful flowers & gorgeous gardens was my everyday. My mother’s garden was always filled with enchanting colour, movement & exquisite aromas. Helping mum plant her bulbs was amazing to me would as I would watch them amazingly emerge from the ground & kinds of stunning floral would flourish in spring. Nature as its best.
Colour has always been an influence in my life. My mother & grandmother were dress designers. Remembering all the luxurious fabrics that were transformed into elegant dresses & the most beautiful ball gowns sometimes with gorgeous diamante flowers delicately sewn on was part of my glorious introduction to colour & design. As a young girl I was drawn to classical ballet which I studied for over 10 years. The dance, movement, drama, colour & precision that went into every step was captivating to me.
