Artist Profile: Julie Schlueter

Julie Schlueter Orange, California
1.  Describe your signature style in 5 words:
Experimental, curiosity-driven, colorful, textural, changing.

2.  Do you ever work in another medium and, if so, what is it and what appeals to you about it?

3.  What's coming up for you in your artistic world?  Working with a fine art nonprofit group.  Learning from two wonderful curators.

4.  Do you have any studio rituals?  Not really.  I try to play.  Life is too short not to play.

5.  Who has inspired you on your artistic journey?  Many, Jane Dunnewold, Nancy Crow, Ruth McDowell...

6.  What are the 5 essential things in your studio that you cannot live without?  Sewing/felting machine, beautiful fabrics with great color and texture, amazing threads, hand stitching threads and needles and, of course, scissors.

7.  What is on your design table right now?  Some handwork play.

8.  How do you juggle your artistic life, family, friends, etc?  Unfortunately, my artistic life gets pushed to the back.  I used to be more prolific.  I keep thinking once I get organized I will spend more studio time playing/working.

9.  Do you have any studio companions (human or otherwise)?  Just me, and beautiful fabric and thread.  Anything else is too distracting.

10.  What was the biggest challenge in creating your piece for Reflections? Thinking of the design.  Once I got that set, it was all fun from there.
