Artist's information

Spring Art Show 2015 A door to Serenity by Julie Cook“I like to create art for others and hope they enjoy my experimentation. Many of my paintings are painted using more than a brush—and often without one. I use cardboard scraps, pieces of wood, plastic from packaging and more. Sometimes I paint from an actual ‘real’ place and put my own interpretation on it, and some of my paintings are a collaboration of the nature that surrounds me where I live or where I’ve been or sometimes just where I’d like to be.”
-- Julie Cook


Artwork by Julie Cook is available for purchase; proceeds benefit the Penitentiary Glen Nature Center.
