Julie studied Visual Education in the Waterford Institute of Technology and subsequently received a National Diploma in Art & Design from the Galway Mayo Institute of Technology in 2003. Now living and working in Kilkenny, she has exhibited extensively throughout Ireland including at the Kilkenny Arts Festival, Eigse, Carlow and the Royal Hibernian Academy.
Julie’s abstracted landscapes are vibrant, layered and have always been rooted in drawing. Working primarily on paper, board and canvas she combines paint with drawn elements as drawing for her is not only a way to represent object or place but is also a way to engage in the intuitive physicality of making marks on a surface.
Julie Cusack’s work is represented in the OPW State Art Collection and in private collections in the UK, US, New Zealand and Portugal.
