Based in Cumbria, Julie Dumbarton is an acclaimed landscape painter.
Julie has been drawing longer than she can remember, and painting since not much after that. Colour plays a key role in Julie's work and she likes to explore the tension between abstraction and representation alongside the duality between technique and mood. She sees her landscapes as bolts of illumination.
Behind each of her bold and joyful paintings, Julie will spend hours in the studio; mixing her own paints and pigments and working on several pieces at a time
