Julie Luke is a visionary artist based out of Tacoma, Washington. She creates whimsical paintings that are spiritually channeled and evoke her ideals of being boundless, and promote the paradigm of freewill. She uses bold patterning, and intense contrast to express her distinct works of art, which she uses symbolically to express her quantum geometrical ideas and environmental energies she experiences.
Julie’s works have been exhibited in galleries and art venues throughout the Pacific Northwest, including a commission for the private gallery of the Dr.Martens U.S. Headquarters in Portland, Oregon.
Julie was the eighth of nine children, and formal art culture was not accessible to her as a child. She began creating time based ecological art at the age of five years old and began to educate herself in painting when she was fifteen. Julie’s artistic beginning evolved from an innate means to express her distinctive voice amongst a repressive environment, she taps into her higher self to maintain identity of pure creation.
Julie’s views are seen as visionary, and she believes we are all capable of harnessing the light of creation. The universe is full of endless possibilities for all, and her works are just one layer and aspect of that beautiful energy to send out to the masses.
“I love to love and through my art, I can reach the masses in any way they desire, but my energy is fixed in each piece that brings love and positive energy where ever it may end up, this is what I was born to do, and life won’t allow it any other way!”
“Creating to me is everything! Manifesting to the world on the outside what lives within, this is freedom of self, this is seeing I, live to create, and create to live!”Julie is currently working on a series of illustrated mixed media pieces, short stories, local murals, various bodies of new sculptural work, reclaimed art, green &economical friendly interior design and learning the art of tattooing.
