Cover Artist: Julie Barry

Lady Girl on the Beach, by Julie Barry

Julie Barry lives in a small village in the Northwest of England in the United Kingdom. She paints mostly in acrylic and loves to paint children on the beach, vibrant pop art or retro-chic fashion and glamour ladies. The artist also loves to paint ACEO art cards, still life and portraiture.

Ever since childhood she has pursued various arts and crafts pastimes such as knitting, sewing and cross-stitch. The artist enjoys anything that involves the creative process, and so with the birth of her son in 1993, Julie decided to make a special birthday cake for him. That one cake began a journey to eventually take up cake decoration professionally, something she did for many years.

Julie’s husband, a self taught painter, saw one of her highly detailed cakes when they first met in 2004. At that moment he saw the artistic potential in his future wife and encouraged her to start painting – which Julie did and has enjoyed ever since.
