Considered a contemporary folk artist, Julie has spent a lifetime observing how emotion manifests in the gestures of human form; the special roles light and topography play in composing a landscape; and how all of this can be used to express the deeper story. The far-reaching topography and vast sky of her Michigan roots shape the backdrop for the figures in her work.

Toggling between these nostalgic pieces and her abstract colored panels, Julie’s art serves both as a working commentary on sound design and the essence of being human.
