After many years of teaching art in secondary schools and with her passion for ceramics, Julie Massie embarked on an MA Ceramics at UCA Farnham, which she completed in 2016. Throughout her MA, Julie took her inspiration for her artwork from the Jurassic Coastline which is a beautiful, interesting and internationally important place because of it’s fragility. The colours and the fragility of this coast are both reflected within her final outcomes. Her work also explores the senses, especially touch, sight and sound.
Julie was selected for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in 2016 and was also selected for COLLECT17. In 2017 she won the Rising Star Award at the New Ashgate Gallery in Farnham. Since then she has continued to exhibit locally, regionally and at London galleries and venues; as well as working on some exciting commissions for clients.
