Julie is a thinker and a doer. A maker, writer and imaginative mind. She daydreams and creates in constellation patterns; never a straight line. She is a big-picture visionary with an acute sensitivity to visual details. Two words that people often use to describe her are observant and calm

Her background is in the visual arts, with an MFA in Applied Craft & Design. She studied environment design, specifically investigating how the built environment (both permanent and transitory) shapes human interaction, feeling and behavior. Julie's work crosses and combines many fields, never limiting her interests to one medium. 

Julie's most recent project is a book she wrote, photographed, and art directed, called Wabi-Sabi Welcome: Learning to embrace the imperfect and entertain with thoughtfulness and easeThe book is published by Artisan Books and is now available everywhere.
