Beautiful greeting cards based upon Julia Manning's sumptuous prints.
Julia’s work is rooted in the natural world and her subject matter has been described as ‘nature with attitude.’ She is inspired by both her surroundings in Somerset and from her travels further afield. Julia is an associate member of the Royal Society of Painter Printmakers and the Society of Wildlife Artists.
The rich assortment of flora and fauna on display in the local region and wild places she visits shapes the inspiration for much of Julia's work. Often found with binoculars or telescope in hand, Julia seeks to observe scenarios and interactions between birds and animals - whether it be an exchange of glances or the movement of a bird in flight; she instinctively interprets a fleeting moment in sketch and then later re-interprets in print. Her depth of knowledge and appreciation for her subject matter is palpable and adds to the vibrancy and animation of her prints. Translated onto cards create timeless designs with characters full of humour that brightens anybody's day.
