Jules’ Small Corner
of the World
Chaos versus calm is a recurring feature of my work. I want to celebrate vibrancy and yet I want to facilitate meditative states, both at the same time, and the tension between these two potential outcomes is what compels many of my abstract pieces. The blaze of colour dissolves into softness, the sense that a turn of the dial may settle all manner of turmoil.

If you are interested in creativity, personal development and being the best you can be, then keep checking back. (Updated 19 June 2020)
