Studio space

Hi again,

Thought you may like to see my working space for my artworks.

I only have a small room (ex study) that provides me with everything I need for now. I have some folding tressle tables that I try to layout in an L shape, but am at times re arranging my space. I have my working table top board on one table and tend to work from my left for painting in oils and have my gouache materials on my right. This way I don’t really need to move things about when I change mediums.

My new lighting is fantastic. I have pure daylight 24 hrs if I need it. It just clamps onto my table top which is easy.

My room is a sunny north west facing, and on a nice day will give plenty of light naturally.

I’ve added some pics to show you my studio.

Enjoy and what is your working space like?




Julie Toffolo is an Australian born artist and lives in Melbourne Victoria. Her art is in private collections around Australia.

She has two teenage boys, works part time as an Education Art Assistant at a Secondary Girls School and paints on her days off in her leafy Eltham Studio.

Julie works in illustration in a nostalgic vintage style and loves to paint from the nature around her bushy local environment and wherever she can find any form of nature on her travels. She is captivated by how the light flickers and dances when working from still life or outdoors.

Having studied 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.

You can follow Julie on Instagram, Facebook and LinkedIn to watch and support her art practise.
