About Julia Odell

I am predominantly a landscape artist but have become increasingly interested in urban social documentary. Currently I find drawing, with soft mediums such as pastel and oil stick, particularly expressive as it allows experimentation with layers and subtractive techniques. I capture scenes with camera, and sketchbook, and complete works at my studio. I anticipate that drawing will form the basis of my future projects including the exploration of new art materials.

I grew up in the southwest and studied art at York St Johns. Since becoming an artist full time I have exhibited widely and have artworks held in private collections all over the world. I am a Harrogate Mercer and Platform Open winner. I live and work on Dartmoor.
