    Biography

    An award-winning painter with work in public and private collections worldwide, Julie Umerle was born in the USA and currently lives and works in London. She studied fine art at Falmouth University, Cornwall and Parsons The New School for Design in New York. She works in series that are consistently open-ended, exploring similarity, repetition and difference within each group. Her practice is an investigation of materials and the perception of  the image, exploring the materiality of paint and the processes of abstract painting. Recent exhibitions include 'Contemporary British Watercolours', Maidstone Museum, Kent  (2015); 'Present Tense', Swindon Art Gallery, Wiltshire (2015); 'Contemporary British Painting', Huddersfield Art Gallery, Yorkshire (2014)
