I studied at Oregon State University for the 3rd year of my Hons Degree from Grays School of art. It was at O.S.U. I first experienced fibre art and textiles as a fine art discipline rather than design.
I have continued to experiment with fibre arts, particularly papermaking, and have been self-employed since graduating with an MA from Manchester Metropolitan University in 1992. I have completed many residencies including 5 months in Taiwan at the Chayoyang University and the Su-Ho Paper Museum.
Julia Douglas is a textile and mixed media, visual artist based in East Lothian, Scotland. A constant inspiration for her work is the home and the relationship people have with the objects they put in their homes. Douglas makes art by exploring seemingly trivial household objects, and remake these by playfully transforming them, often using them as surrogates for the owner’s body, and, consequently drawing attention to their significance in helping to tell a story about the inhabitants’ life and the culture in which they lived.
I would describe my work as being very narrative.
I love creating work which has a story behind it or meaning.
