“Everyday I am truly inspired by the colours, nature and organic patterns that surround us all. I have loved being creative for as long as I can remember and the creative possibilities are endless in any medium.”

As an award winning sculptor, ceramicist and photographer 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 and clay, 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.

Visit the Byron Bay Studio Gallery and enjoy seeing Jules create.
