Julie Toffolo is an Australian born artist and lives in Eltham, Melbourne Victoria. Her art is in private collections around Australia.
Julie works in illustration and traditional art in a nostalgic approach with reference to our childhood feels of joy, freedom and safety. She loves to paint from the nature around her bushy local environment and wherever she can find any form of nature and animals on her travels. She is captivated by how the light flickers and dances when working from still life or outdoors. Her works are painted using gouache, soft pastel, digital and oil pastel.
Having studied Illustration and also traditional painting methods under Jenni Mitchell and Mervynn Hannan from Eltham South Fine Art Studios and Gallery has taught Julie many elements of drawing, composition, colour, painting, trying new materials, beautifying the simple things around us.
Julie has been a member of local artist co ops and exhibits throughout the year.
