Shifting Style Artwork  

Everything changed in 2005 when Julie was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. After losing a lot of the feeling in her dominant hand, and with reduced dexterity, she found that the paintbrush was no longer an extension of herself.

Now classified as being disabled, Julie has had to adapt and shift her style. But instead of letting it limit her, she has been inspired to experiment with different media and new techniques.

“Ironically, my disease has bought with it a chance to evolve and develop my craft.” – Julie Anne Fitzpatrick.

What inspired you to start selling your art commercially? 

I’ve always been creative, and often gave my art as gifts to friends and loved ones. The paintings were always well received so I thought why not broaden my scope?

As an independent what is it about your brand that sets you aside from others?

Each piece is unique. My abstract paintings are genuinely one of a kind.

What are your favourite Paintings currently for sale? 

I’ve just finished a new series of works with a deep, black background that I’m very proud of. The paint colours need to be opaque and vivid to achieve a satisfactory outcome and I’m particularly pleased with the metallic paint I used.

How are you hoping to benefit from your residency at The Crossing? 

Exhibition and retail spaces in London are expensive, so The Crossing is a phenomenal opportunity to display and sell without hefty overheads. This means I can keep my prices down and make art more accessible to so many more people.

What does the future hold for your business? 

I hope the future is bright and colourful!
