"I found I could say things with colors and shapes that I couldn't say any other way - things I had no words for."

-Georgia O'Keeffe


Inspiration for Julie’s paintings comes from the things she loves—the memory of her childhood, her family, friends, nature, and home. By including bits and pieces of old family photos, vintage fabrics, memorabilia from travels, and pieces of her children’s artwork, her paintings give her a way to document these things. Each one tells a story.


Julie lives and works in Dayton, Ohio.  Her paintings have won local and national awards and can be found in public and private collections across the US and abroad. She is a self-taught artist.
