Julie feels strongly that all her art must come from her own experiences. It must be completely original from her. Fortunately, in her life she has traveled extensively and intensively in 101 countries giving her abundant opportunities to observe (even camp among) animals, to meet (even become friends with) people, and discover (even grow) flowers, in all corners of the globe. She describes her work as an artist, author, designer, photographer, and speaker pure fun with the pure goal of bringing joy and beauty and a bit of humor through her creations.
She has expanded her art and writing in many directions to products and designs. Look at those sections of her website.
