Julie has been interested in creating animals in clay for a number of years before she took the plunge in 2007 after attending a course run by animal sculptor Brendan Hesmondhalgh. She progressed onto a series of foxes which were exhibited in Hebden Bridge and the Haworth Art Gallery in Accrington. From there she has been exploring the wildlife in her studios at Higherford Mill and hares, otters and badgers are currently being worked on .
