Julie Ann Scott
Acclaimed artist Julie Ann Scott has the gift of capturing such mesmerising moments with the artistry of a magician commanding light to strike for a moment in time - sometimes through cloud or water - illuminating and transforming the normal into the spectacular. She was born into an RAF family abroad, grew up in both the north and south of England and set off after leaving school, where despite suffering from dyslexia she excelled at art, to find her real father. Subsequently she spent an eventful and adventurous time abroad working as a catwalk model in Israel, an actress in California and travelling around much of Eastern Europe carrying out mission work. Eventually Julie Ann returned to England and started creating art again, teaching herself to paint in oils by working every day for a year in a studio where her dazzling style developed.
