Julie Ross utilises playful, witty, and surreal components to comment on issues regarding contemporary society, personal experiences, and humanity. Figures with half-human, half-animal features frequently appear in Julie's work; these playful figures are characters created in response to the ideas, teachings, metaphors, and symbols we encounter in so many narratives. An engaging and masterful storyteller, her surrealist and illustrative style is layered with multiple meanings and innuendos. 

In 2005, Julie received a BFA with Honours from Canterbury University, followed by a Masters in Painting in 2011. She has exhibited across New Zealand and abroad.
