Julianne Guinee is an oil painter, figurative and landscape based in Buttevant, County Cork. She graduated from the University of Limerick in 2011 with a Bachelor of Education. Although Julianne painted from an early age, she began to paint full time in 2019 following the deaths of her twin children Mabel and Blaise in infancy.

Julianne is particularly drawn to imagery and complexities of the human form and works where possible from life, whether hiring models for her studio or taking to the fields. She works in oils, her work from life informing her practice for her larger pieces completed with the aid of photography. She balances thought provoking paintings of explosive power with gentler nostalgic paintings which celebrate the ordinary miracle, taking you on a journey around many of the different aspects of everyday life. She is known best for her paintings which celebrate the everyday magic of childhood.

Julianne has exhibited throughout Ireland as part of group shows and her first solo show will open in the Hunt Museum, Limerick on July 3rd. She is represented by the Kildare Gallery, the Russell Gallery and Gallery 1608. The appeal of her work is eternal, unblemished romantic realism.
