About the Artist

Her mother influenced her art from the age of three, and Julie has very early memories of learning about the background, middle ground and foreground.

About the Artist

Julie Lemons uses soft pastels and watercolors to create paintings of animals, people, flora, and several other subjects. Her mother influenced her art from the age of three, and Julie has very early memories of learning about the background, middle ground and foreground. Now an accomplished graphic designer, she has worked for Lincoln Public Schools for almost 18 years and freelanced for 30 years.

New art additions to Turning Art include landscapes. A series of 14 soft pastel landscape paintings are now being shown at the Nebraska Governor’s Residence. This is an exciting event for Julie. Two of her pieces hang in offices at the Nebraska State Capitol, in the collections of a Federal judge and the Director of Agriculture.

As a past president of the “Association of Nebraska Art Clubs”: http://www.nebraskaartclubs.org/, Julie lead forty-three art clubs across the state and helped to organize the yearly state-wide art conferences. She is also hosting an art exhibition for mothers of the state, inviting artists to participate in 2013. She recently coordinated an all-city art show for high schools students in Lincoln, Nebraska. Helping other artists enriches Julie’s life and her artwork, thus feeding her passion.

Julie is now working on a book, “Naturally Wild: How to paint animals using pastels.” She hopes to have it published early 2015.
