Hope you enjoy my art.
I was born and raised in Finley NSW, spending my childhood on our dairy farm. I attended Finley High School and would spend as much time as I could in the art room as I wasnt very academic but would try for extra marks for my essays by creating an elaborate drawning to get my meaning across, its usually worked! Being from a small town in the 1970s , art training opportunities were non existant so I left school and went straight into the workforce.
Not being able to train or study art as made me develop my own style and I have always had a some type of creative outlet as a hobby.
Last year I deceided to create a FB page just for my art and post a picture of something I had drawn or painted each day for the whole of 2019. I really did this to get myself back into the swing of sketching and it worked!!! I did post a picture a day!! My dream is to retire from full time work so I can paint the days away! Bliss!
Regards to my style, I tend to use reference photos I have taken myself or photos from friends they have given me permission to use. I really love the opportunity to sketch from life, so, when time permits, I try to go into the bush or country towns to discover old sheds, houses or just sketch the beautiful scenery.
I have only added my current paintings to Gallery247, but I also have lots of pencil sketch and pen drawings . Iam starting to dabble in watercolours and going back to oils. If you would like to check out all my art you can follow me on my instagram account: JulieKalaArt or like my FB Page: Julie Kala Art
I will take commissions, orders, but cost will depend on the medium and size of painting, please contact me if you are interested so we can discuss. Just flagging, I am not keen on painting portraits, will do a few for friends, but prefer not to take them on commissions.
I also attend the Castlemaine Artist Market, first Sunday of the month, where I display a large range of sketches and painting and prints of some of my art via cards. (market is cancelled till futher notice due to current lockdowns and social distancing)
