Speaking and Publications


Julie’s gentle and dynamic speaking style has been a joy and inspiration to students in elementary, high school and colleges and to adults of all ages. She capably shares her unique painting techniques and is able to guide others through this unique endeavor. But more importantly, Julie is able to poignantly share her experiences in creating visual expressions of her spiritual journey, and delights in helping others engage on a deeper spiritual level through art, discussion, and prayer.

Although she has taught in a wide variety of settings, churches and religious educators have been particularly interested in her speaking and teaching skills.
