JuliAnne says these paintings “encompass a range of styles, from abstract to semi-abstract and realist, all centered on nature. I currently work with encaustic wax, cold wax, and oils, creating textured and sculptural pieces. Layer by layer, I build and excavate, using various tools to add depth and history.”

“I have been creating art since I was a young child,” she says on her website. “Growing up in a family surrounded by professional musicians and creatives, my natural artistic abilities were always encouraged and nurtured. Inspired by the Old Masters, I was classically trained in oil painting at the Minnesota River School of Fine Art from 1998-2005. There is evidence of the Atelier training in my style, yet I try to include a contemporary energy in my work to keep it current. My passion lies in the figure and portrait with texture, landscape, and rich color as complementary elements.”

“Passages” is on view through May 4, 2024. Learn more at juliannejonker.com.
