Hi, my name is JulieAnn (Jules).
I am a Photographer and Digital Artist.
The blog on my website www.julieannatwal.photography tells of news, upcoming exhibitions and projects.
My instagram is the place to go to view my latest images, many of which do not appear on my websites.
I use art and creativity to support my mental health and I believe in sharing my story to support others’ wellness.
On this site, I blog about my other interests beside photography; HRT, poetry, the menopause, navigating life as a mixed race woman, aging and many other subjects.
I hope to inspire you with my art, amuse and educate you with my blog and encourage you to live your arty life authentically, intuitively and creatively.
Art in an Emergency
“We’re so often told that art can’t really change anything. But I think it can. It shapes our ethical landscapes; it opens us to the interior lives of others. It is the training ground for possibility. It makes plain inequalities, and it offers other ways of living.”
Olivia Laing Feb 2019
WHAT DO YOU NEED RIGHT NOW?
It seems to me that times are getting tougher. And in the recent past we’ve had to cope living in rapidly changing times; from BLM to lockdown, to climate disasters to desperate families drowning in our seas. It’s all too easy to want to shut down our feelings when the very opposite is what may help us feel more alive.
And so here I am; fulfilling my dream of a new life. A life filled with possibilities.
I invite you to share my journey and my creative content.
