Julia R Martin

Julia is a Chinese Brush Painting artist and enthusiast. Consumed by the beauty and fascinating symbolism, she has been solely dedicated to this wonderful art form for over ten years. She has been tutored by both Chinese Masters and the most renowned Chinese brush painting artists in the UK. Since taking voluntary redundancy in 2011 from a senior management post and over thirty years working in local government, she has been able to dedicate more time to teaching. Julia owns and runs Sidewinder Studio, providing an extensive range of authentic, quality painting equipment imported from individual brush and paper makers and family business in China and Hong Kong. Julia makes month-long visits to China every year to learn more about art from Masters, find new products, make new friends and visit old ones. She is a member of the Chinese Painters Society and was elected to the Committee in 2015.
