Artist Bio or Statement / Bio de l’artiste ou la déclaration
I am a full time artist who has been using coloured pencils since 1994. Before that I painted in oils. I have a Diploma of Fine Arts, majoring in Painting (1978 to 1980) from University of Canterbury, New Zealand. I have lived in Australia since 1982 and Fremantle, Western Australia since 1997.
I travel overseas once or twice per year. For the past decade all my drawings have been inspired by my travels. I have focussed, especially, on Kyoto and Paris. The source material for all my drawings is my own photography.
I have had 11 solo shows as well as participating in numerous group shows. I have entered many art competitions and have 50 awards – from overall winner through to highly commended – and everything in between.
My website is www.juliepodstolski.com In January 2013 I started an art-related blog which I try to post an article in weekly. The blog address is http://juliepodstolski.wordpress.com
