Julie Janvrin, Sculptor and Founder of The Green Tree Gallery

Julie studied ceramics at Falmouth College of Art as a mature student. Returning to Sussex, she set up her own studio producing figurative stoneware sculpture.

Singers, dancers, performers - some glazed, some raku-fired, some written over with sonnets or songs - Julie's work reflects her love of literature as well as her earlier career in the theatre.

In 2008, together with her friend Jules Middleton, a painter, Julie founded The Green Tree Gallery as a platform for local artists and makers. Although she retired from the day-to-day running of the Gallery in 2013, Julie remains a guiding force.

Julie enjoys "an endless exploration of the female form" and says she is influenced by Maillot, Rodin, Giacometti and Modigliani.

"Through the Eyes of a Child" ends on Saturday 12th May.
