Julie claims, "Producing this jazz series has been the most fun I've ever had while doing art work. I always love making art but this series was sheer joy and exhilaration. I would often be in my studio by 4 a.m. bursting with ideas." Once a month, the magazine Jazziz arrived in the mailbox, together with a CD providing a sampling of the latest jazz. Brazilian and Caribbean jazz stimulated her ideas and expanded her ability to express them in color and texture. Julie muses, "Years ago, in the early eighties, I produced several woodblock pieces which came from music. My work comes, entirely, from somewhere through me. It just doesn't get there in a linear fashion. I hope you can look at Tango and the other compositions and feel the dance."
