BBC _ Home is Where the Art Is with Julia Ogden

Local artist Julia Ogden recently featured in an episode of the BBC TV  series “Home is Where the Art Is”

 TO CELEBRATE THIS FEATURE WE ARE STAGING A POP UP EXHIBITION, BOTH IN THE GALLERY AND ONLINE

Always a fan of a good story Julia studied illustration at Edinburgh College of Art. A passion for screen printing followed and she made little artists books about literary characters she loved.

A move to Brighton gave her the opportunity to study Sequential Illustration and continue with her making and printing.

A painting career then developed from showing a few paintings in a pop up shop. Julia painted florals and landscapes and was published nationally and internationally.

Her love of nature and her surroundings still continues and is fuelled by a move back to her home of Yorkshire. Now she paints soft, dream like landscapes, whimsical birds and hand prints a range of products. All her products are proudly handmade here in Yorkshire!

Julia aims to make art that makes you smile; bright pictures to escape grey days.
