About Julie &

Curriculum Vitae

Julie Hoyle is a contemporary artist and printmaker based in Surrey in the UK.

She say’s working in print has given her the greatest flexibility; from printing on Perspex, wood and aluminium for installation to experimenting with a mixture of digital and traditional methods of printmaking to create a variety of hybrid and conventional prints.

Julie studied Fine Art at Reigate College, and completed her degree at The University for the Creative Arts in Farnham, achieving first class honours. She studied printmaking with Sheila Schloss at the London College of Communication before taking her MA in Fine Art Printmaking at Camberwell College of Arts - the University of the Arts London.

Founder of Ochre Print Studio in Guildford, one of the foremost independent printmaking facilities in South East England, Julie obtained two Grants for the Arts from Art

Council England for the studio, and personally tutored, mentored and editioned work for artists of all abilities during her Directorship from 2006 – 2016 


As well as a current exhibiting artist, Julie tutors, coaches and mentors. She feels she has a rapport with the disability art sector and has worked with a number of charities and organisations including regularly with DAiSY (Disability Arts in Surrey) and has recently been elected to their Board of Directors.


She loves collaborations of any kind and they are an important part of her work as an artist, informing her art as well as finding reward in the vocation. 

Julie also co-chairs the arts committee for the Swiss Church in Covent Garden. The church runs a successful arts programme including a partnership with the MFA Curating Programme at Goldsmiths University of London.
