Julian studied printmaking and illustration at Eastbourne School of Art for 4 years in the early 1970s.
He paints the landscape, coastline and urban areas in this country and on many trips abroad, in particular Barcelona, Paris, Amsterdam, New York and Havana. Julian has work in a number of private and public collections including The House of Lords.
In 2010 he worked on a project entitled Sussex 365 which comprised a series of small paintings of the Sussex countryside which he exhibited at Glyndebourne Opera House near Lewes in East Sussex.
Julian has since created paintings during the Glyndebourne Festival for the past eleven years. He has also had paintings included in the Royal Academy Summer exhibition on three occasions.
