I've become increasingly drawn to decorative patterns, mainly from historical manuscripts but from more contemporary sources too. This is a gilded piece on vellum I'm working on, my interpretation of an illuminated border fragment by Attavante from a missal of Pope Leo X (Florence, 1513-1521).

INFLUENCE, EXPERIMENTATION, AND PLAY IN CONTEMPORARY LETTERING
CURATED BY MARK NOAD
THE LETTERING ARTS CENTRE
Friday 27 September, 11am to
Sunday 24 November, 5pm
This exhibition will bring together an eclectic and diverse selection of artists and designers who all demonstrate that they are willing to try something new. In doing so, the exhibition sets up a dialogue between the different lettering disciplines encouraging the visitor (and the participants) to consider how the cross-pollination of ideas can benefit the continuing development of lettering and design.
The exhibition will feel active rather than passive with visitors encouraged to interact with some of the exhibits and to share their experiences on social media.

Following her move out of the city in 2005, Julie continued with her studies and trained under many prominent calligraphers, eventually progressing to a professional level. She accepts commissions and teaches regularly.
