Before coming to live on the Central Coast, Julie taught overseas where she experienced a variety of cultures and artistic styles that have influenced her current work.
“My paintings are a personal reflection of the world around me. I enjoy creating works of art that are inspirational and uplifting.”
“In an era filled with high technology, stress, and an endless stream of ‘bad news’, I like to draw attention to that which is beautiful and often overlooked, in our fast-paced, modern lifestyle.”
“I consider most of my paintings to be portraits; whether of a particular landscape that I’ve come to love, a gorgeous flower at a certain moment in time, an exotic or endangered species that I’m capturing for all eternity. I present to my viewers a vision of the world as seen through my eyes and hope that they can see what I see, and feel what I feel.”
