Julie Marcelia is a Pacific Northwest native and currently resides in Issaquah. She has been professionally involved in the arts since 1990, first as a musician and later as a painter. She holds a master’s degree in music and which provides valuable background and inspiration for her painting practice. Always evolving and wanting to learn more, she's supplemented much of her specific painting education with coursework at Gage Academy, Seattle Artist League, and the New York Studio School. She also owes a debt to Seattle painter Fred Lisaius and the BC critique group. She works primarily in acrylics, appreciating their texture, depth, and versatility.
Always with an eye and ear open for the beautiful, honest, and expressive, she finds joy in creating paintings that reflect those ideals. Julie has always loved the outdoors and the natural world and is especially drawn to moving water - the frequent inspiration for her Metal Leaf Scapes. She also paints expressive figures exploring the narrative of silence and voice in her series Underwater Silence.
Julie is a member artist of the Art Gallery of Sno-Valley, a regional collective art gallery in historic Snoqualmie, WA.
