A native of Minnesota, Julie spent 20 years in Montana and southeast Alaska before returning to Duluth, which she now happily calls home. Her landscape painting is strongly influenced by 19th century Tonalist painters; she seeks to represent nature as poetry through capturing the mood and atmosphere of a place. Using expressive brush strokes and veils of color, Julie conjures up a visual place, the ether that embraced it, and the weather that transformed it. In addition to painting, Julie is a ceramicist and creates functional stoneware on a potter’s wheel for her studio, Wren Pottery.
