On the 6th of February this year Her Majesty The Queen became the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, marking 70 years of service to her people and country. In honour of our gracious Queen, Elizabeth II, Julia has created a Platinum Jubilee Collection in celebration of Her Majesty’s service, and we are offering a 10% off flash sale on this collection until 23/02/2022. Use code PLATINUMJUBILEE at checkout.
Julia has drawn a portrait of the young Elizabeth, at her coronation, sat on the royal throne, with sceptre and orb in hand. The Queen is flanked by a big rainbow onto which Julia has written the words to the British national anthem. The rainbow is meant as a symbol of the Queen’s stoicism and optimistic nature.
The Queen’s love of horses is renowned and throughout her life she has been an ever-present figure at equine events. She has often been photographed riding and caring for horses and here Julia has drawn a young Queen Elizabeth riding side-saddle through London on one of her beloved horses, in her military uniform with two guardsmen striding behind her.
Julia has created an endearing portrait of the Queen in present times. Surrounded by a blue circle, representing the globe, and laced with a gold olive branch, the illustration shows Her Majesty as a world peacemaker. Julia’s naïve illustration reminds us of a kitsch, snow globe, one of millions of souvenirs decorated with the images of the Queen throughout her lifetime and which enables people to find a meaningful connection with their monarch, as does this delightful illustration of Her Majesty.
Having created a collection previously to mark the Queen’s Silver Jubilee in 2012, 10 years on, Julia’s artwork continues to offer a unique vision of the world in which we live and one in which HRH Queen Elizabeth II continues to reign with dignity and resilience.
