Each of her images are born out of an emotion or concept. Julie combines the digital photographs in layers to produce pieces that look they were painted rather than manipulated on screen.
Julie gained an Associateship Distinction from the Irish Photographic Federation (IPF) in 2017. She was awarded the Artiste FIAP Award in 2019 from the Federation Internationale De L’Art Photographique (FIAP). She has also won individual prizes for her work, including a silver medal at the 5th Swedish Small Print Exhibition.
