Julia Flanagan is primarily a painter with a growing interest in sculpture. Born in Newcastle, Julia moved to Sydney to study Painting and completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts at the National Art School in 2004 and her Painting Honours in 2005.
Working from home while she had young children, Julia began exploring textiles - designing and making hand-painted leather bags. As she moved back into painting and art making, her strong interest in textiles, pattern painting, geometric forms, colour and printmaking emerged within her new works.
Working in an improvised way and drawing on her textiles making practice, Julia combines colours and patterns to create abstract pieces that are whimsical, quirky and joyful.
