Julia Timmins

Julia Timmins was born in Wolverhampton and now lives in rural Shropshire, she trained as a jeweller and worked for many years as a jewellery designer and production director in the Birmingham Jewellery Quarter.

Julia uses the skills and attention to detail, developed by working with jewellery, in her wood engravings and other prints.

“It has been a natural progression for me to use my jewellery making and designing skills to create the blocks to make prints.

I am drawn to work from natural forms, plants, flowers and birds and I am continually inspired by my garden and the surrounding Shropshire countryside where I now live and work. I prefer to draw my designs fairly loosely onto the block, this allows me to take inspiration from the design and respond to it with engraving tools to render the details – this is the part that I enjoy the most.”

Julia is an elected member of the Society of Wood Engravers, she has prints held in public and private collections both in the UK and internationally.
