Julie McEnerny


After studying at Julian Ashton Art School in the 1980s, Julie developed a career in art and commercial illustration, that has spanned thirty years.

In 2009, after turning her practice toward botanical drawing, she commenced the first of five annual residencies and exhibitions with Cairns Botanic Gardens and Tanks Arts Centre. On completion of the fifth residency, a retrospective of the solo exhibitions was toured nationally by the Tanks Arts Centre in partnership with Cairns Botanic Gardens, supported by Australia Council for the Arts.

Julie lives in Cairns, North Queensland where she continues to explore the botanical realm through her work – from colourful exotics to Australian natives of the Wet Tropics region.
