Julie Arkell is one of Britain’s best recognised contemporary folk artists working in papier-mâché and mixed media and using domestic craft techniques, in her own distinctly sophisticated way.
She makes everything by hand in her London studio, manipulating and painting her papier-mâché figures, stuffing bodies and embroidering clothes. She trims her creations in knitted adornments, curious accessories, ribbons and found objects. The result is her magically appealing little creatures.
