Julie Cook is a self -taught artists who mainly works in acrylics and mixed media. Julie grew up in Lyndhurst Ohio. Julie and her husband raised their family in Madison and still reside there. They are in the country so nature surrounds her and she enjoys it and finds it inspiring. Julie loves to experiment with paint and products and see what new textures or techniques she can learn or develop. Although she uses a brush, she also uses sponges, scraps of wood, plastic, trowels, recycled packaging material and a variety of other items. She often uses techniques and tools she has used in faux finishing of walls and furniture. She is inspired by God’s creation and realizes that He has given her creative ability.
Julie’s artwork is in private residences not only in the area but also overseas.
