About

Multi-talented Julia Godfree weaves her creative magic on the Gold Coast. Imbued with a vibrant sense of spirituality, Julia’s work is sumptuous and dynamic in it's transformation over time. Her 30 years in painting and sculpting has produced a rich and intricate tapestry of work that stimulates the senses. Some of her explorations in mixed media are so dense and textured they lift off the canvas. Like many artists, Julia is continually diversifying and finding new approaches to expressing herself, so there is a great variety in her offerings. Julia works with many mediums, ranging from acrylic, inks, resins and oils through to clay and ceramics with a keen interest in stone. She is inspired by her love of nature and she often projects the vibrant colours that surround her. Her ability to master new techniques means her journey will continue to surprise and provoke those around her.
Julia is well exhibited throughout NZ and the Gold coast. She has also judged in many art awards.
Julia welcomes commissions for art and sculpture, both small and large. Her sculptural works make beautiful award pieces for councils and corporate businesses as well as wonderful corporate gifts.
