Julia Hirst is blurring the lines between painting and photography, using contemporary digital techniques.
Her childhood was divided between England and Wales, and being outdoors in nature was always her greatest joy. After moving to Canada in her twenties, Julia studied both photography and interior design, while raising a young family.
Although she enjoyed her DSLR camera for many years, Julia now shoots exclusively with her iPhone. The excitement for her is primarily in the editing process, as this is the catalyst for her creativity and design skills. Her work demonstrates a fresh perspective on both the natural and man-made worlds, focussing on details, and giving a bold voice to her subjects.
