Working as an artist and graphic designer, Julie paints to fulfill an almost instinctual need to leave a mark, to alter, to create.
Julie grew up in Ancestral farm, Plessisville, Québec, Canada, and now works out of Nelson, B.C.. With a B.Sc. in Forestry from Laval University in Québec City, she finds inspiration in art, fashion, landscape, literature, music & photography. Through her work, Julie strives to convey emotion and energy, as if to intuitively feel rather than see what surrounds us.
“Art lets me see the unseen. It grounds me while setting me free.
I chose to work with abstracts for it allows me spontaneity and freedom. I am not concerned with form but with colour and composition. My artwork is very dynamic, both in it’s execution and result. You can often perceive the motion in each stroke.”
