Julie Seyler began painting at 12 with a Saturday morning art class. She took a break to become a lawyer and picked up a brush again at 40 when she started to take classes at the Art Students' League on 57th Street in Manhattan. Seventeen years later she is still a lawyer and still creating art in every medium- oils, watercolors, pastels, collage and assemblage. Art feeds the soul.
I am drawn to the visual. I strive, with every work of art, be it a painting, a photograph, a collage or an assemblage, to embrace color, line and composition in an unfamiliar way. I seek the nontraditional and unusual. If I am successful the work delivers repeated curiosity such that the viewer wants to look and look again. The worst reaction is the neutral nod of the head.
