of Periwinkle Art School of Banner Elk, NC.

Periwinkle Art School, Fine Art Instructor in Banner Elk, NC


Julie is a long time resident of Banner Elk and the High Country area. She graduated from Watauga High School and Appalachian State University with a degree in Commercial Art. She has been working with her art in some way ever since at organizations such as Administrative Arts (Orlando, FL), or Cheap Joe’s Art Stuff, (Boone, NC) or Sunrox, LLC (Banner Elk, NC). Now, she is passing her love of art and creativity on to students at the Periwinkle Art School.


Julie has been creating or “doodling” for as long as she can remember, which makes sense because her childhood nickname was “Doodle”. Julie began drawing regularly at the age of 9 and art has been a part of her world since then. She has worked in most every media out there over the years, but her true love is drawing with colored pencil.
