Julianna Byrne is a London based artist, she graduated from London College of Communication in 2014 where she received a BA hons in Illustration. Julianna practices mainly with inks, pencil and water and creates ethereal paintings presenting a mythical landscape of ferns, flowers, woodland nymphs and hypnotic river bathers. Delicately coloured and detailed, they are spooky yet serene, calling to mind Klimt’s ‘Danae' and Waterhouse’s 'Hylas and the nymphs’. 

Julianna draws a lot of her inspiration from the depiction of the female form in ancient mythology, she was part of the ‘Girls Only’ collaborative exhibition in Mumbai in 2016, curated by Antonia marsh. Her latest body of work “Muse” consists of dreamy paintings depicting numerous nymph like nudes from greek mythology.
