Julie Hixson - Artist


I find painting one of the most relaxing and therapeutic things in life. Having taken a break from painting to concentrate on family life, returning to the paint brushes has inspired me to explore the coastline and countryside and hope I’ve done it justice in capturing some of it’s natural beauty in my recent work.

Majority of my work is either landscape or wildlife. I love to work with oil on canvas especially with seascapes which I believe helps capture the mood and moment with vibrant colours. 

I have prints of these original paintings available if you wish to buy one.  

Check out my Instagram Account for more details of what I am doing and please contact me on the email address if you would like to buy any of these paintings or a private commission.

Thank You!

These are four of the paintings being entered into the PAWS Exhibition.   PAWS is a major arts festival held in Purbeck, Dorset, this year it runs from 25th May to 9th June.  It is not just about paintings, and includes all forms of art.

The two paintings below were both part of a private commission.   The  wave is 1.0 x 1.5 m and took a month to complete. 


Inspired by the waves I saw when I was on a trip to America.


A long afternoon walk for my favourite Bulldog and Pug, along Studland Beach.


Waiting for the tide to return, this yacht stood proud in the evening light.

This was a commission.  Please contact me if you would like a special painting composed for you.

It's a good walk along Ballard Down to capture this view.
