My Studio

It feels like I have been creating all of my life, whether learning to sew with my grandma, making sand castles with my brother and sister, or taking art classes. I am blessed to have grown up surrounded by creative people who inspired and supported my goal of becoming an artist. I majored in art and education at Nebraska Wesleyan University and then taught art for six years. julie painting
I loved teaching, but I always wanted my own studio. This dream became a reality in 2000 when I left teaching to create full time.  I enjoyed selling my work to stores, at art shows and online. I took an extended maternity leave when my triplets were born in 2004. Since then, we have moved to a farm with a 140 year old farmhouse. We all love being in the country and in a home with a lot of “character”. green ware painting
I have set up the painting part of my studio in my house so I can be near the kids and all of the activity. They love to paint with me and they are continually inspiring me and making me laugh. My kiln is set up in my husband’s shed. He has been very helpful getting my equipment set up. art table
I can’t say enough thanks to Dave Faulkner for creating my website, enduring all my little changes and my many questions. He and his wife, Jan, are fabulous realtors in Omaha. You can see their site here: thefaulkners.com.

Thank you also to my good friend Carrie Roberts who has taken all of the photos on this site. She also takes great family photos. You can see more of her work here: carrierobertsphotography.com.
