|Originally from Reunion Island, Julie Ah-Fa moved to South Africa almost 10 years ago and is currently a producer for TV commercials and an artist. Julie studied botanical art painting under Ann Harris and has always enjoyed exploring different mediums, including pencil, charcoal and oil. In recent years, botanical art and watercolour have played a defining role in her work. Watercolour allows her to accurately translate the delicacy of plants and the transparency of the lively colours.
She does not have a preferred plant or subject, but works according to the immediate inspiration and curiosity she feels for each plant she paints.
She exhibited previously at the Johannesburg Botanical Art Exhibition with BAASA and was awarded a Bronze Medal for her first participation at the 2013 Kirstenbosch Biennale.
