Julie Ponesse was born in North Vancouver and currently splits her time between Niagara-on-the-Lake, where she paints and offers painting workshops, and London, Ontario, where she teaches Philosophy at Western University.

Julie’s work focuses on architecture, landscapes, and floralscapes. Whether working on location or in the studio, Julie strives to capture the general impression of simple scenes and objects in a fresh and uncomplicated way. She is known for her loose brushwork and fresh use of colour, and is particularly interested in the subtle interplay between light and shadow. Her pieces are colourful and unfussy, and she continues to push the boundaries of how much detail can be omitted while still having a scene ‘read’ correctly.

Julie’s work has been featured in solo exhibits, and is currently available in galleries in Ottawa, Stratford, and the Niagara region. She is also an award-winning plein air painter and regularly offers commissioned pieces.
