Julie Arkell

Here's some eye candy from the incredible UK artist, Julie Arkell. She is represented at Twig and Earth Angels in the US- but isn't yet online herself. She did however create a beautiful book that shares her work and studio with us-some images seen below. Her book can be purchased here or on Amazon if they're out. I've been collecting these images from all over the internet-so I apologize if I have forgotten where I clipped the image-but just know all are copyrighted by Julie Arkell.

One of Julie's pieces on Earth Angels from years back now, struck such a deep place in my heart that I KNEW I had to start making things with my hands again ... something I'd loved since I was very little. I now have an image of that piece hanging from my mobile over my art table. I celebrate her every time I see it twirl past. I will always be grateful for that moment of discovery.
