"I go out
and get the idea, and then I direct it or
compose it." -Art of the West September/October
Julie Jeppsen is known for her paintings combining
realism and atmosphere of wild animals in
landscape. Julie is a self-taught artist,
whose subject matter is a wide range of animals.
In an article from Art of the West, Julie
stated that she hikes into the wilderness
to see her subjects on "their home-turf."
Julie says that animals are like children
in that you get to know their character and
instincts. Julie's art talent came from her
mother and her love for the outdoors from
her father. "Being outdoors inspires
me to paint."
Julie grew from
working with pastels to oil. She found that
she liked the rich colors of oil. She sometimes
carries a pocket watercolor set so that she
can do a color study.

and the Southeastern Wildlife Exposition in
Charleston, South Carolina.
