'Art, Life and Everything' is the much anticipated memoir of abstract painter, Julie Umerle. It is an account of her journey as an artist between the years 1978 - 2010, recounting her personal history during a time of extraordinary change in both the art world and the world at large. The book is edited by Anna McNay, with a foreword by Colin Thubron CBE. It contains 186 pages, and 40 illustrations, 38 in colour.
Upon publication, it will be available through Amazon, as well as a number of bookshops.
Robin Klassnik, founder and director of Matt's Gallery, describes it as:
"A thoroughly enjoyable read. Art, Life and Everything shows the importance and joy of painting and making art. It provides insight into how an artist functions in their studio and in the outside world.
Julie presents an investigative and relevant example of how an artist has to struggle and continue to work on a professional level, for that is what they do throughout their careers".
