about

“My entire life I have loved being creative and in every day I am filled with an abundance of ideas.  The colours of nature and organic patterns are never ending inspiration and the creative possibilities are endless in any medium.”

As an acclaimed multi-medium artist and designer Jules Hunt exhibits throughout Australia and sells her work internationally. She is constantly exploring and evolving the design, colour and form of her art across various mediums, creating a style that is unique and vibrant with a strong sense of composition, dimension and colour. Mediums include photography, ceramics, pottery, metal work, painting and textile design. With a background in Graphic Design and Photography having studied at UWS Sydney, she has evolved her style incorporating these skills to create her very unique artworks and designs.
