Julie Arkell

julie-arkell.jpgJulie Arkell is one of England’s best recognised contemporary folk artists working in papier-mâché and mixed media. It has been said that Julie “…cannot resist the rejected debris of everyday life”. She especially favours discarded toys for inspiration and printed textiles (book available via loop).

  1. her dolls are lovely. I can’t find her work very often on the web, so it’s always nice when someone posts about her.

  2. Julie Arkell’s work demonstrates so much imagination and skill, at the same time manifests a child-like approach. It is a combination of nostalgic art form with contemporary influence. Simply irresistible.
