Julie’s painting style may be viewed as traditional, while her imagery is more contemporary. This blending of the old and new is a refreshing approach to often seen subject matter, drawing free loose brush strokes coupled with her vibrant palette enliven the subject matter, engaging the viewer. Her imagery is drawn from sources encompassing many aspects of public life she finds.
