Julie Vernon

Contemporary mosaic artist – Julie produces a variety of work from interior wall pieces through to feature flooring, site specific artwork and public art sculptures.  Her largest project to date is the public art she created for David Wilson Homes in Leicestershire – a millstone wheel sculpture and series of mosaic/stone boulders running through a housing development. This was an ambitious project and Julie really pushed herself out of her comfort zone to scale up and combine natural stone and mosaic for the first time.  

Julie works with a huge mix of materials from vitreous glass and ceramic to natural marble, slate and vintage porcelain. She enjoys working in a freehand, organic style to create a sense of movement in her work and is most inspired by natural finds.  

Over the next five years Julie plans to keep getting her work out there so that it can be seen and enjoyed! She loves seeing new work develop out of collaborations so would love more of that
