Julie Williams is a photoartist living and working in the Vale of Clwydd, NSW Australia. Julie has been a finalist in national photographic awards, and her work is represented in private collections.

The source of her imagery is the natural landscape within the Great Dividing Range near her home on the western edge of the Blue Mountains. Video and photography capture moving water at a waterhole in a nearby river. This location is a sacred women’s place in Wiradjuri country, and a site for women to tell their stories. Now a contemporary recreational and nature reserve it is developing a modern history while still manifesting deep spiritual links with the past. Water, for Julie, is a metaphor for the passage of time, death and renewal.

In October 2013 a bushfire known as the State Mine Fire ravaged her home area and beyond. New photomedia work currently being developed for exhibition in 2014 will combine imagery from this fireground and water imagery to capture the essence of the wildness and the unpredictability of nature.
