Project Description

Julia Hernon
Julia HernonArtist
My name is Julia Jay. I’m a 22-year-old freehand pen artist based in Newcastle.

About 8 months ago now I left my hospitality job to pursue my soul’s passion – creating magic through art.

I fill my weekends with markets and my week with commission orders, The Horoscope Project, market prep and keeping up with all the art business admin side of things. I also run pen workshops, which I am about to start for children.

I have also started delving into the world of colour through painting. I’ve painted a Mexican food van and just had a week at a festival helping with stage painting, which was a new experience for me and so amazing to see the work behind such a colourful festival!

I feel constantly grateful to have a job that is more of a lifestyle and keeps me so excited and so motivated! There are so many things I want to create!

I’m also grateful for the opportunity to have a desk space at The Roost, thanks to The Roost Scholarship Program. Working amongst other individuals who are also running their own businesses is incredibly inspiring.

I hope you have a magical day and I look forward to connecting with you! 🙂
