Mixed Media Textile Artist Julie Turner
Julie’s work reflects her preoccupation with the significance of early childhood experiences, in particular those of maternal deprivation and loss. She works with rust and natural plant dyes to change the surface quality of fabric and to convey meaning. Her work is often in the form of faceless dolls and unwearable dresses. Through her work and installations Julie hopes to evoke an emotional response in the viewer.
Julie trained as a Primary school teacher and has a degree in Psychology, with a particular interest in child development. Further studies led to working as an Art Therapist and gaining a first class degree in Fine Art at Loughborough University. Julie now works full time as a Mixed Media Textile Artist in her studio in the Euroart complex in Tottenham, North London.
