About Julia Pewsey

After graduating from the North Essex School of Art in Colchester, I worked in several design studios and became a freelance illustrator in 1990. Since then I have done artwork mainly for greetings cards, magazines and giftware, with animals and wildlife as my main subjects.

I have always loved painting animals and after producing pet portraits for family and friends, decided to concentrate on this area.

Watercolour on a tinted board is my favourite medium as it enables me to produce highly detailed paintings made from many layers of colour, which I aim to make as realistic as possible.

Over the years I have painted many commissions and my work has travelled worldwide. I have also been on local radio and my work has been shown in various exhibitions. If you have any enquiries please email Julia at julia@jpetportraits.co.uk, or visit me on my stand at countryside and game fairs throughout the South East.
