Julie’s research and art practice involves uncovering and re-presenting  subsumed and often conflicting histories, often referring to her own and her family’s experiences as Tasmanian Aboriginal people. Current work in installation, sound and video provides the means to explore ephemerality, absence and recurrence.

Julie holds a PhD from the University of Tasmania (2001), Masters degree (Visual Arts) University of London (Goldsmiths College)(1998), BA (Visual Arts) Curtin University West Australia (1994), BA Honours (Visual Arts) First Class, University of Tasmania (1995) and BA (Prehistory/ English Literature), University of West Australia (1987).
