About Julia Odell

I grew up in Cornwall and graduated from York St Johns in 1998 with a ceramic major. After graduating I spent some years teaching vocational, and non vocational, courses in the arts.

I took up painting full time in 2011. Since then I have had solo exhibitions at various galleries in the UK. I have sold artworks to collectors all over the world as far afield as Australia, USA, Singapore and various countries in Europe.

In 2012 I won the Harrogate Mercer Open Art Competition and in 2015 I won the Platform Open. My studio is currently based in North West Leeds.

I produce traditional landscapes and am also interested in urban social documentation including the study of people at work or in transit.

I will be exhibiting at Blossom Street Gallery York during July 2018 and at Artworks Gallery, Otley, in the Autumn.
