Julie Crews is an oil painter. She grew up in Asheville, North Carolina but has called many other places home. A few include southern California, which housed her awkward high-school soul, northern California, which taught her how to ease into her 20’s, and a decade in Louisiana which gifted her with more vision.
Julie received her Associate of Arts from Brigham Young University- Idaho. She now lives in Huntsville, Alabama with her husband and five children. She operates an open studio and gallery inside of a 122 year-old cotton mill, Lowe Mill Arts and Entertainment. Julie paints what takes her out of the studio: the life it takes to nurture a family. When she is in the studio, she escapes domestic tethers. Yet, on canvas, there remain before her the scenes of her life: fires burning in the backyard, children swimming, and snapshots from running errands around town.
The the flow of traffic, weather and landscapes encountered while driving, and the moods of people closest to her influence her work. Recreating these scenes gives permanence to the emotional undercurrents of her existence.
