Julie Marie Hoey


I am an award-winning artist and poet. My artwork along with my poetry have been exhibited nationally and lives in collections worldwide.

My visual work and writings are mainly nature based and spiritual. When creating I feel possibility. I listen to the rhythms of the paint/objects or the words. I let my brush or pen guide. I look for the heart of the matter that I’m not always aware of until in the act of creating. My mind begins the journey. My soul, brush and pen complete it.

I love belly laughs, storytelling, vibrant colors, gardening, my cat Jasper Johns, good grammar, interesting words, reading, fixing things, exercising and yoga. I am certain my greatest is amusing others—unintentionally.
