I studied Fine Arts (Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, University of the Fraser Valley), but even prior to that I think I had always been an artist. At age 3, I drew a bunny and won a drawing contest in my very small countryside community. I think I was pretty adorable, but don’t tell 3 year old Julie that, she was sure she won because she was a very good drawer.
I live in Montreal with my family. I make art daily. I consume smoothies daily. I like a good challenge.
I’ve been co-coordinator of monthly SCBWI meetings in Montreal with Julien Chung since … I want to say 2015 … or 2014. Who knows? It’s been fun.
