Julia Sorrell has been working with Orkney as her subject where she combined the landscape and the archaeology. Whether the Ring of Brodgar or Skara Brae, she approaches the subject from an artist’s viewpoint endeavouring to make her work equally accessible to both layman and academic. Archaeology has continued to be an added dimension within her work.
“When painting subjects I spend time studying and talking to the general public as well as doing my interpretation of whatever I am drawing. I am very involved with human interaction approaching many subjects with the central theme being to convey my thoughts and feelings as one human to another through the visual form.”
