Julie Maginn




I love being in my studio.

It makes me high.
The paint, the turps, the drips, the tears, the good, the bad and the down right disastrous.
It doesn't matter in here.
This is My space.


I can't throw anything away. I reuse old canvas and board. I revisit them months later, playing with texture, splashing on contrasting colour, recalling converstations. We are like strangers then, my paintings and me. We have to learn to trust each other again. Take it slowly. Sometimes we say Goodbye, but it's never forever.
