Julie Kraut - Watercolor
My name is Julie Kraut. I’ve been seriously painting for over 12 years. I started in acrylic and then changed to mainly watercolor, some mixed media.
My husband and I moved from Arlington to Monroe 2 1/2 years ago. I’ve always loved the Puget Sound and especially the town of Snohomish. I’ve visited Arts of Snohomish gallery a few times and have wanted to become a member for a while. Now that I'm a member, I think that it will be a way to meet new artists and a great creative collaboration.
I’m self-taught and have taken classes online and through local artists.
Being artistic is a big part of my life. It is my way of being creative and a good way to be in my happy place. I am retired and paint at least 5 days a week.
I get inspiration through gardening and traveling and photography.
