"I was born in Ballarat, Victoria, Australia. I have loved drawing and painting from a very early age, As I was a nurse for most of my working life, art had to take a back step, but did manage to complete a Commercial Art course by correspondence, at the age of 18. I retired from the work force in 2003 , and picked up a paint brush and have never put it down, I studied art with Tony Moffit in a Online Art School for six months, which was very inspiring to say the least. I have held several local successful exhibitions in the last few years. Since then  I have won a Encouragement award at the Benalla Art Festival , and Peoples Choice at Violet Town Arts and Crafts show. I am a member of the Australasian Wildlife Art Society and The Juried International Guild Of Realism Art. I have a passion for Australian Wildlife , mainly birds and try to paint their interaction on canvas, I try and paint every day and try very hard to improve with every painting I do. It's taken almost a lifetime for me to realize that Aussie wild life is what I want to paint."  Julie Stephens
