Giulianna has always enjoyed realist art, preferring drawing and pastel since childhood. Her most recent works demonstrate experimentation with watercolour and acrylic, however her real love is the versatility and diversity of pastel texture and stroke. Her inspiration has always come from nature; gardens, flora, landscapes, life drawing and her own children’s portraits.Though traditionally classic and realist in approach; Giulianna is developing a looser, more expressive, semi-realist style.
Giulianna has been an active member of the Diamond Valley Arts Society since 2009, regularly exhibiting in group events.
Giulianna lives and works with her young family in Banyule.
Giulianna is largely self taught. She is a professional Interior Designer and thoroughly enjoys dividing her time between Art and Design. Each discipline inspires and informs the other and her love of colour and texture runs through both fields.
Giulianna has been an active member of the Diamond Valley Arts Society since 2009, exhibiting annually in group events and winning entry categories such as:
2017 Best Pastel/Best in show/People's Choice, 2017 Highly Commended Acrylic, 2016 Best Acrylic in Show and 2015 Best Pastel in Show. Prior to this were Highly Commended Awards for Pastel and Charcoal Drawings, and in earlier days student awards.
In January 2017 Giulianna had a first solo show titled "Inside Out", exploring acrylic and pastel flora based works painted with a negative space aspect.
Her inspiration has always come from nature; gardens, flora, land and seascapes, life drawing and her own children’s portraits. Giulianna has sought to keep realism from the her original photographic images, while deconstructing the techniques with interpretive gestures and bolder application of colour.
