About the artist

Born in Quebec in the 70's, Julie Martel now lives in the town of Saint-Lazare. She studied police techniques, law and philosophy at Laval University. She is currently the public security training director at the National Police Academy of Quebec.

Experimenting with oil painting in 2005, Julie focused on textures and light. She created complex scenes wilth the superposition of layers. Then, she learned acrylics where she discovered the use of pure and vibrant colors. Watercolor won her heart in 2021. She was seduced by the transparency of the colors. With this medium, she learned to express herself freely, because it promotes spontaneity.

Then, she discovered 'urban sketching'. With this technique, she paints urban scenes directly on location. Sitting on her stool, among passers-by, she creates using pencils and watercolor on cotton paper. The goal is simple : to connect with the environment and capture the essence of urban life during one's many travels.
