Julie Bowland

Julie Bowland grew up in the Midwest, where frequent trips to the Chicago Art Institute fed her appetite for the works of Monet and Van Gogh. Nature was as influential as art, providing refuge and inspiration. Born in Florida, she has always been attracted to its lush, watery wooded landscape. She received her BFA, Magna Cum Laude, from Florida State University and continuing with expressionistic plein air paintings, earned an MFA, Magna Cum Laude, from Arizona State University in Tempe.
