About Julie Robertson

I am an award winning artist, illustrator, graphic designer & the creator of Bobson Farm.
I grew up on farms throughout country NSW and now live and work in Sydney.
I paint mostly in acrylics and generally use a very simplistic illustrative style, making the emotions evoked through my artwork the focus. I am preoccupied by the simple beauty of the world around me, reflecting this in my art.
I began painting when a seemingly insignificant packet of water colours was given to me as a gift. I discovered a love for painting and have been doing it with a passion ever since. I am a self-trained artist immersing myself in study wherever possible, believing constant practice, experimentation, and failure are the best teachers, recognising that ‘mistakes’ have made for some of the most beautiful surprises. Studying interior design has also further fuelled my love for colour, line and balance.
It has long been my personal philosophy that art should create a place where a person can escape this chaotic world and experience something beautiful and inspiring & even if only for a moment.
I share my world with my husband Brett, two beautiful daughters Jordan and Millie, son in love Martin, grand children Hunter, Matilda and Joah, mum Luda and my beautiful dog Pumpkin, all constant inspirations.
My Studio is in Sydney NSW and I accept commissions.
