She has been awarded the Denis Diderot Scholarship as an emerging artist and will be a resident at Chateau Orquevaux in June 2023. Traditionally she has worked as a commissioned artist but since 2020 Julie has slowly started to focus on her own work and explore traditional mediums and her love of the outdoors at her new second home on the Space Coast, Florida. She enjoys working plein air ala prima and uses those studies to inspire major works.
