Julia Gash is a British Artist and Map Maker Extraordinaire who is passionate about print.
From her studio in Devon, Julia creates hand-drawn illustrations using brush and ink and collaborates with licensees worldwide to create sustainable souvenirs and stylish gift ranges sold in flagship museums, popular tourist attractions, blue-chip department stores and destination boutiques around the globe.
Julia's map like illustrations captures the character and cultural heritage of a specific location.
Julia's designs connect people with place, whether they are culture vultures on tour or locals who want to celebrate their city in style. The whimsical illustrations communicate a child-like vision and offer a playful and honest interpretation of the world in which we live. A cyclist wearing a hat can be found in all of Julia's "Cityscapes" and this little figure symbolizes Julia: traveling around the world through her art.
Julia's understanding and experience of print span several decades and as such her artwork replicate beautifully on a wide range of giftware, stationery, souvenirs, and home accessories.
Julia's distinctive handwriting is expressed as spirited and creative line drawings infused with a vibrant color palette. Over the past five years, Julia has created a unique and everlasting archive of illustrations featuring cities, towns, and regions from all around the world.
More recently, Julia has widened her portfolio to include North American college campuses in an exclusive agreement with Neil Enterprises Varsity Line.
