Welcome to my neck of the woods. This site is dedicated to bringing nature back into our lives. It’s part nature therapy part creative expression. It’s irony and passion rolled into one by Julie Green, who founded this site to inspire others to find states of calm inspiration in a chaotic world. A little more nature harmed nobody and there’s countless studies to prove it.
“Peace. It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.” – Unknown
ABOUT JULIE GREEN
Julie Green is a visual artist, photographer, writer, volunteer firefighter, digital marketer, nutrition coach and PT in the making who is blessed to live by the bush. She’s passionate about wildlife conservation, environmentalism and conscious capitalism, cares about making tiny footprints, healing through nature and learning to be calm through chaos. In her spare time, you will find her hiking in Australia with her hubby, the brilliant (and handsome) owner of Freeman’s Fitness in Hornsby. New South Wales.
Julie Green is a multi-passionate Sydney-based artist who works in acrylic, pencil, natural-light photography, and the written word. She has learnt to hone her craft over years of self-directed practice. One theme in Julie’s work is her vision of the beauty of nature. As a volunteer firefighter and avid hiker who has lived by the bush all her life, Julie draws on these experiences to help shape her work and mission.
Her approach to art, life and people has been described as genuine, warm and sensitive, with an undeniable passion due to her exuberant yet subtle ‘challenge to life itself’ – which is what she attempts to channel in all her work. Drawing inspiration from the impressionists and expressionists, Julie’s artwork, writing and photography have been described as being ‘from the heart’ with an attention to detail that ‘helps others see with new eyes.’
By sharing her art, Julie’s mission is to open the space for others to dive deeper, whether it be: into their experience and appreciation of the natural world; to find peace of mind and inspire calm within the everyday chaos; to find healing through nature and human connection; or to feel the joy that can be found in simple moments.
Her art and photography have been featured across Australia and the world online, through Australia.com, Blue Mountains Australia, Blue Mountains Gazette, The Hornsby Advocate, Ourbribie.com, Australia Nature Conservancy, Oxfam Australia, WIRES NSW, Light Space & Time, Berowra Village, the Central Coast Council, and Hornsby Council.
