Julie Drew has always been attracted to the beauty of God’s creation—mountains, oceans, animals, and flowers. Capturing creation in painting, she explores the depths and nuances of color, light, shadow and shape of the world around her. Her passion for art led to a BFA in Painting and Drawing from Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, WA, USA in 1987.
In 1997, Julie moved with her family to Edmonton, Alberta, where they now make their home. Although Julie works predominantly in watercolor, she also uses mixed media with her own handmade paper. Julie connects art and faith, teaching retreats and workshops. Julie also teaches papermaking, watercolour and mixed media as well. Her art work and series of paintings have been exhibited around the province of Alberta and have been purchased for private collections in Canada, the United States, Australia, France and China.
