JULIE MCENERNY, 'Sea Stick # 2', 2021, Watercolour pencil, paper size 21 x 15cm
"Sea Sticks are linked to my Little Sticks series in that they are found (in this case on the beach) and are hosting different species of barnacles, sea-grass, sponges and algae" Julie McEnerny
After studying at Julian Ashton Art School in the 1980s, Julie developed a career in art and commercial illustration, that has spanned thirty years. In 2009, after turning her practice toward botanical drawing, she commenced the first of five annual residencies and exhibitions with Cairns Botanic Gardens and Tanks Arts Centre. On completion of the fifth residency, a retrospective of the solo exhibitions was toured nationally by the Tanks Arts Centre in partnership with Cairns Botanic Gardens, supported by Australia Council for the Arts. Julie lives in North Queensland and her current work remains in the botanical realm – ranging from colourful exotics to Australian natives of the Wet Tropics region.
Product care: Paper is 100% recycled cotton rag, hand-made in India. If necessary re-flatten by spraying the pack lightly and placing down a heavy weight book eg, overnight. DO NOT WET THE FRONT (It will damage the drawing)
