After working in a multitude of mediums throughout my whole life, I discovered the utilitarian hard-shelled gourd when in Arizona. Her inspiration turned into a welcomed obsession. It is the perfect canvas for diverse mediums...drawing, painting, carving, pyrography, sculpture, weaving...endless possibilities. After taking a myriad of classes, Julie have found herself especially intrigued by the pervasive Native American cultural influences on southwest art, and was drawn to creating stylized figures, vintage pots, and totems. Most of her pieces reflect that interest in different ways as she hopes to convey that interest and passion through them.
