I am thrilled to be able to share some inspirational art and design with you every Tuesday morning as Rachael's 'Art and Creative Writer'. This week, I'm featuring the contemporary folk art of Julie Arkell.
Julie works predominantly with papier-mâché, often including textiles, embroidery and a variety of mixed media to create quirky 3D characters and accessories. She up-cycles fabrics and found objects and is inspired by old toys, books, colour and movement.
She exhibits, has a book published and teaches regular workshops at West Dean College and Loop London where you can find out more information about her work. Have a great week, Justine x
