Julie Greig

Name: Julie Greig
Bio: Julie Greig was encouraged to begin drawing from an early age in charcoal and soft pastel. She had her first ‘solo' exhibition while at Cobham Intermediate school in Christchurch showing a range of styles, subjects and media. The unique and varied New Zealand landscape, stockmen and women, still life, horses and portraits are her inspiration. Born in Raetihi, near Mount Ruapehu, then living in Canterbury and the Wairarapa has kindled a love of mountains and wide-open spaces for this artist.
During the 1990's Julie worked as an illustrator on a number of children's books, stories and novel covers, along with postage stamps and First Day Covers for NZ Post. At the same time she worked as a children's book designer for educational publishers in the Wellington area.
In 2004, Julie was recognised as an Associate of Pastel Artists of NZ (APANZ), in recognition of excellence in technique and the work she had achieved to date. She paints in her home studio in the historic and attractive river city of Wanganui in her home studio where she also holds classes, and travels throughout the country teaching workshops.
