emotion and the transmission of light
fascinate me. It goes beyond mere
rendering to seeing beyond the outline
scene?s essence. The painting must connect you
to the place in the way words cannot. If I can

- Julie Houck
Julie's capture of
light is second to
none. Her multiple layers of color from each color
gradient takes the
eye into the gentle subtle, yet powerful colors
that nature provides.
Her contemporary landscapes change with the light
in your home,
making her work a pleasure to enjoy in all
lighting. Collectors have
said that her paintings are the only ones that
still can be seen in
the dark, after the light goes out. They each have
a glow that brings
it to life.
Julie's art career began in
Boston as a professional photographer for 17
years. In 1995, she decided to pursue a career as
a painter. She studied at the Atelier of Classical
Realism in San Francisco with David Hardy, at the
Academy of Fine Art in Seattle with Anthony Ryder
and most recently, in France, at the L'Ecole
Albert Defois with Ted Seth Jacobs.
Julie's paintings are exhibited extensively in
Hawaii. Her work is part of the permanent
collections of the Hawaii State Foundation on
Culture and the Arts and the Hawaii State Art
Museum. She was one of the featured artists at the
commemorative "Artists of Hawaii" exhibit at the
Honolulu Academy of Art in 2000 and has been
juried into Art Maui six times.
One of the artists chosen to represent the
United States at the Florence Biennale 2007 in
Florence, Italy, Julie has also been the recipient
of many awards and grants, including the David
Warren Memorial Scholarship Grant, a Hawaii
State Foundation on Culture and the Arts
Acquisition Award as well as exhibition prizes for
painting. Each year, Julie holds several plein air
painting workshops on Maui and in France.
