Julie’s imaginative style focuses on daily life in its simplest and most charming form. The source of her inspiration derives from the enchanting world around her.
Her artwork represents daily life in a simple state. Julie is inspired by everything around her, everything that makes her think and smile and dream of creating an entity of images and colors.
“I am at my best in my atelier as the sun comes up, or goes down, having no plan other than being present and covering up what pleases me…. Playing and experimenting”
“My work is mostly subjective impulsive and improvisational.”
