Shetland born artist Julie Willmore has always been passionate about art, and painting in particular.

Her paintings are inspired by the natural world; Shetland's diverse landscape and dramatic coastline, the constantly changing weather and unique quality of light in Shetland, all provide continuous inspiration for her.

Her style has evolved over the years, from close up detail in flowers and foliage in her earlier work to her latest collection of paintings capturing the drama of the Shetland landscape. She works mainly using acrylics, pastels and gesso. In some of her landscapes she also incorporates handmade papers to create surface texture, which helps to evoke the drama within each composition.
