The daughter of an art teacher and descendant of the celebrated artist Mary Cassatt, Julianne has been painting the American Western landscape for 15 years in pastels. while she continues to paint in her first love of pastels. A few years ago Julianne embarked on a new medium with painting in oils. My primary focus with the oils has been the landscape and aspen. I love to focus on the trunks and the unique scarring they exhibit. I see the parallels between humans and aspen with the scars we bear, endure and earn over our lifetime. Each one unique, but ours to wear. The other similarity that I see in the aspen is the interconnectedness in the whole of the aspen grove's root system. Just as the aspen are forever banded together. That is how we heal our scars, with the love and support of those close to us. Painting with oils I can build and create dimension on the canvas, additionally, I love the fact that there is no need to put glass over the oils.
