Julia Odell

Acrylic Paintings
I am inspired by my local environment and find reality exciting. Time and place is important. I strive to be emotive and instinctive while capturing the atmosphere and intrinsic character of the scene. Prints, cards and original works can be purchased from the studio. Visitors are welcome.

Otley Courthouse is a unique development run by people in Otley, West Yorkshire. After an eight year development period we transformed a redundant nineteenth century magistrates court into a unique arts and resource centre for our community.
