Formerly an illustrator, Julie organically worked herself into the position of owner at Krab Jab in 2011, when the gallery shifted from working studio to gallery. Many of the gallery shows sprung from her thematic visions, and she remains devoted to curation and development, despite stepping back from some of the operational activities of the previous years.
An artist at heart, Julie still draws and paints when time allots. As of early 2017 she joined the Praxis Arts group in Seattle's Georgetown neighborhood.
Julie also co-hosts a podcast with illustrator Brian Snoddy (shown in picture), "The Yuki-D and Jinx Show". With guests like Steve Belledin, David Gray and Mark Poole, the show focuses on the things artists really talk about.
