Julie, a home decor enthusiast, works with watercolour as her preferred medium to add life onto the walls of homes in Melbourne and beyond.

Her Wanderlust Collection city-scapes have become highly sought after prints. The series depicts famous city skylines, which highlight famous global landmarks in a rainbow of colour. What makes Julie's city-scapes unique is the way she uses watercolour to 'bleed' down the length of each piece.

You might think Julie's New York, London, Sydney or perhaps Paris would be her most popular prints, but her artistic interpretation of Melbourne happens to be her best seller.

As a result of her famed Melbourne work, Julie was recently commissioned to adorn the walls of a Footscray coffee shop Brother Nancy, portraying the city's Western suburb in her signature watercolour style.

So pretty. A good design for this years cards to our O/S relatives. I like to always send an Aussie theme with a Christmas design but to send Melbourne is a real bonus.
