ABOUT JULIE'S WORK
Julie Schoenecker is first and foremost a printmaker although she continues to enjoy oil painting as well. She also made the paper on which many of her prints were embossed. Never one to miss a challenge, her work has taken on many forms including handmade books, collages, sculpture and so forth. Nevertheless, "Printmaking grabbed me," says Julie, "I took to it like a duck took to water. Printmaking chooses printmakers... we just go along."
Julie tells us, "To be a printmaker one has to love the process and not be in a hurry for the result. I seek to strike a balance between organization. and spontaneity. As an artist, I play with images, I play with ideas, I play with color. I try to respond to what is evolving so much of my work involves surprises, to me and my viewers."
She participates annually in the September Whidbey Studio Tour. For a glimpse of her studio in this year's tour, we have a brief slide show you can see by clicking here.
