1960 - ?

As Julie L. Wing, she was born at West Ham, London in 1960, daughter of Albert E. Wing and his wife Jean D. née Linford, who married at West Ham in 1954. Julie studied A Level Art at Dane Court School, Broadstairs, Kent, then took a BSc and Diploma in Occupational Therapy and worked in psychiatry, as an occupational therapist both in England and abroad, using art as a creative and therapeutic tool for many years. She married at Redbridge, London in 1984, Paul W. Driscoll (born 1953) and paints under the name of Julie Driscoll. A mostly self-taught artist developing her skills by having tutorials from other professional artists to improve techniques. Most of her work uses an 'impasto' style with oil paints, palette knives and the use of hands with paints being applied in layers over several weeks, working on several canvases simultaneously. Her paintings tend to evolve as the paints are mixed and different tones are created, generally they are impressionist contemporary landscapes. Her subjects are often related to local Suffolk landscapes, particularly water-based areas such as reeds and rivers, although each picture evolves during the painting process perhaps leaving only a figment of the original image. A Member and regular exhibitor at the Ipswich Art Society and a full member of Suffolk Open Studios from her studio at Coach House Cottage, The Street, Eyke, Near Woodbridge, Suffolk and has also shown both in solo and mixed shows including at The Old Rectory Campsea Ashe; Snape Maltings; The Old Printworks Gallery, Saxmundham; 'Art on the Prom'. Felixstowe and her work is on show at Vanil, the interior design shop in Church Street, Woodbridge, Suffolk. http://www.juliedriscoll.co.uk
