Julia Ockert


Painting had always been a passion of Julia’s. Still, it wasn’t until after she had worked as a digital designer for a few years after university that she focused on becoming an artist.

“I often explore different subjects, mediums, and styles. My love of detail, light and shadows, and the theme of nostalgia shows in all my work.”

Julia draws inspiration from classical music, 1970s photography and patterns in nature.

“The medium I have the most fun with and feel is vastly underrated and overlooked would be oil pastels!”
