"This artwork is a reminder of the importance of preserving natural habitats for birds. Only by appreciating and protecting these creatures can we continue to admire their charm and wonder in the years to come."
As an artist with an intellectual disability, Julie Ragu never knew that she had a hidden talent. It wasn't until COVID-19 lockdowns that she discovered her passion for art. Julie's art has become a way for her to express herself freely and boldly through her creations.
Julie has developed a unique style of crossing lines and using an array of colours that truly sets her artwork apart. With each piece she creates, her confidence grows.
Julie says it's so rewarding to see people appreciate and value her art. She finds the process fun and fulfilling, and she's excited to see where her art takes her. For Julie, art has become a way for her to connect with others and showcase her creative vision to the world.
