Julie comes from a musical Eastern European background, rich in folklore, myth, fairytales and dance. The artist grew up in Britain, then relocated to New York in the 1970's to study art. She returned to the UK in the 1990's and continued her work as a visual artist. She also creates hand made books with her poetry, text, and illustrated stories. The work begins in drawing and develops with pastels, crayons, inks, oil paints and monoprints.
"It is as if I see transience and fragility echoed in the illusive and the ineffable. It is something which remains hidden and forever escapes our perception. The pathways are those on which we never arrive. The horizon is beyond where we will never see. These are the daydreams of infinity"

 Julie de Bastion Artworks.
Julie de Bastion is an artist, maker of artist books, storyteller and art educator. Her art work is driven by her love of myths and fairy tales. Julie's books and artworks are in several private collections including the New York Book Fair at PS1 MOMA (New York, NY), the Williamsburg Art and Historical Center (Brooklyn, NY), the Royal Shakespeare Theatre Trust (Stratford upon Avon, UK) and the Stadtmuseum National Gallery (Berlin, Germany).
Ms. de Bastion is also represented by The Center for Book Arts in New York City.

In 2011 Julie was invited by Sir David Bintley, Director of the Royal Ballet Birmingham, to be artist in residence to draw the dancers. This series of work is now available as high quality reproductions.

Paintings by Julie de Bastion

Lyrical poetic abstractions in compositional
Julie’s works are renown for their quality
and immediacy of emotive responses to
light and space, expressed through the
richness of gestural colour.
 These small intense homages to visual
beauty create a window through which we
 are invited to glimpse a world where
fleeting and transient moments in light
are captured in vital potency.
Her works have been purchased by private
art collectors, including the Stadtmuseum
Art Gallery and Museum, Berlin
