Julie Shunick Brown is a contemporary abstract painter. Her work suggests places, memories, and emotions - the reality not seen. Her paintings convey a sense of timelessness. Fascinated with color and experimenting with technique, her work changes: evolving and evoking life. Life challenges and inspires. Change envelops: past and future intermingle with present. Memory refines and perfects. This is reflected in her intuitive, multi-layered paintings - meant to be ambiguous and interpreted by the viewer.
Born in Nevada, she began drawing and painting as a child. She grew up in Arizona and Northern Virginia, studying at The Corcoran School of Art and spending any free time in the art museums in Washington, D.C. After graduating with honors from Arizona State University with a B.F.A. in Interior Design, she sporadically continued to study painting and drawing, most recently at Southern Methodist University. In 2012, she left a long career with Procter and Gamble to focus on painting. Her paintings are in private collections throughout the U.S. and Canada. See them at her studio by appointment.
