Julie Hollinshead is based in Bletchley, in the UK, but receives commissions from all over the world. Her coloured pencil pet portraits are very popular (although she does work in acrylics and oils as well).
Julie works mostly from customers own photos of their pets. Often these are top secret presents which customers have ordered for loved ones who have no idea what they are getting when they open the package but they are always delighted by the high standard of artwork.
Julie has seen her popularity as an artist grow since first exhibiting her work and actually selling it in London at the end of the 1990’s while still in her teens. Since then her artwork has been steadily improving and she decided to become a professional artist in 2009.
