About me
Hello! My name is Julia, I'm an Illustrator and Printmaker from Mallorca, Spain based in Norwich, U.K. Since graduating from NUA I have been building up my freelance portfolio with a range of exciting projects, from album covers, to stage design for concerts, print design on textiles for interior design and numerous other fun collaboration projects with local creatives. I have also been developing my event management skills by co-directing Site Collective, an art collective focused on supporting young creatives, giving them a platform to share their work through pop up shops and online exhibitions and to connect with other likeminded folks through networking events such as 'Drink & Draws' and online meet ups. In my own personal practice I have focused on linocut print as my main medium. I enjoy creating editions of botanical themed prints and experimenting with printing on textiles. It is very important to me to always use sustainable materials, such as linseed oil based inks, recycled paper or upcycling textile goods.
