About Julie Peterson

Julie resides in East Wenatchee, WA. She is a self taught artist. She can remember her love for art as early as seven years of age, sitting and drawing horses for hours. Her career as a full time artist began in 1996. She has been in many art show in the west.

Julie loves painting scenes from all over Washington. She feels the state of Washington offers everything an artist could ask for. As a Washington artist she has been collecting photo research for many years and now wants to begin to Plein Air Paint. She plans on exploring more of Washington. She paints over 20 new pieces of art each year. She continues to show her work in the summer months and finds new venues during the winter.

Her medium is in Oils on Canvas, linen and Hardboard. She paints landscapes and wildlife. Her style is defined as traditional realism. Each piece of work has many hours of devoting layers of paint which gives each piece its rich brilliant color. Her reproductions are Giclee Fine Art Prints on canvas or paper, high quality materials are used with archival canvas, inks, paper and varnish.

The challenge and new endeavors is what keeps her spirits high. The ability to be creative and share what she loves with others is a great gift and honor and makes her very happy.
