About me – Julo

Hi…..

My family consists of one lovely husband and a large cat ‘Buki bear’, we live in a beautiful little house in the Cotswold. I grew up on the little rock of Jersey based in the Channel Islands. Most of the de Gruchy clan still live there. I got married and stuck my husband’s name on the end. I used to work at a college and was fortunate enough to love my job as a Senior Art Technician/Gallery Curator, crikes I miss those kids dearly.

    Hi Julie,
    Just seen your butcher art – a friend send who has been to winchcombe sent me pics. They look amazing. Are they for sale and if so, how much are you selling them for?
    Do you do any other pieces similar to this?
    Kind regards,
    Dan

    • Hi Dan

      Thank you for your kind words.
      Yes they are indeed for sale. You can buy the butchers through the gallery and I do have other pieces that you can buy independently from me directly. I have the 5 ‘butcher pieces’ that are the ones currently on display at the ‘Winds of Change’ gallery. However I do intend to do some more butchers and increase the series plus a few other ideas on particular trades people that I want to begin soon.

      I have also done a series on Polar Explorers and the beginning of a larger body of work that is a little more unusual based on a girl character. I am happy to do work on commission if you have an idea or vision in mind.

      Please provide me with an email address and I will be more than happy to post you some images otherwise I have just placed pictures of most of my work on Flickr. (I will be adding titles/details to them this evening – sorry about this.) Search for me under: juliedegruchyeast

      Thank you

      Julo
