“I painted a lot in my youth” she told me “but then my life took another direction. I worked with software and with graphics arts. Then about 2 years ago I started painting again. I got this small space at Front Street and now I’m painting almost every day.”
Julie’s painting are in several different styles, but I especially like the birds she has painted. I noticed that several small bird paintings were no longer on her shelf, and I asked about them.
You can visit Julie’s studio on any of the First Friday or Third Sunday events (1001 East 2nd Street, Building 100, Door BC, 3rd floor). You can follow her art at Julie Riley Art.
You can order prints of many of her paintings on her website.
