Piece description from the artist
The way this flows makes me feel alive and whole. I understand the nature of the way the water moves, the way it folds, rises and reflects. It feels like a language that can not be spoken.
Without the turmoil of analysis, it just feels right. The surface of the water is something I am completely lost in awe of, yet understand. That understanding is all I need. Let us bask in the brilliance of earth's magic as a reflection of our own. Thoughtlessly, it flows through my entire being and gives me a presence of peace and joy.
Oil painter Julie Kluh lived on her sailboat traveling the world for a decade. Having spent so much time at sea, she was continuously inspired and moved by the beauty of the ocean. With a deep soul calling to paint she returned to land to share her gift and experience in vibrant color.
Julie's art captures the movement and light within and beyond the human form reflected in the ever-changing ocean. She captures the power, harmony, and aliveness felt in the natural environment of living water that relates to so many of us.
Julie studied art at the University of Washington and now resides in Olympia, WA where she paints from her bay-side studio.
Julie has developed her own unique visual style and fused it with a distinctly peaceful nuance. Her paintings invite us to dive in and feel the essence of what unites us.
