About the Artist

Julie is a teaching artist with a passion for both encaustic and oil with cold wax. These mediums best express the light, spaciousness, and mystery that she is after in her abstract paintings. Contemplation, calculation, and exploration are recurring and inevitable themes in her artwork. When working with encaustic, she is captivated by the process of concealing and revealing layers as she explores her experience in the present.

Once a corporate training administrator, Julie has followed her passion for art and painting. With a degree in education she has taught art professionally in the classroom and in workshops throughout the U.S. Julie has studied encaustic intensively since 2004 and is a Core Support Instructor for R&F Handmade Paints based in Kingston, New York. Julie attends and has taught at the International Encaustic Conference held annually in Provincetown, Massachusetts. Her work appears in galleries and in private collections across the United States.
