Phoenix artist, Julie Gilbert Pollard, paints in oil and watercolor in a fluid, painterly manner. Her painting style, while representational, is colored with her own personal concept of reality.
Julie Gilbert Pollard Artist Statement:
The eye may see as a camera 'sees', but the mind's eye sees an altered, imagined image, what it wants and hopes to see. It's that illusive image, uniquely mine, along with a heightened sense of 'realness' that I try to express in my paintings.
A frequent award winner, Julie's oils and watercolors have hung in numerous juried and gallery exhibits. Her work is included in many private and corporate collections and is represented in Nevada by Artistic Viewpoints Gallery and in Arizona by Esprit Decor Gallery in Phoenix & Windrush Gallery in Sedona.
Julie Gilbert Pollard currently teaches painting classes at The Scottsdale Artists' School, Shemer Art Center, West Valley Art Museum and Cynthia's Art Asylum, as well as occasional remote location workshops.
Publications include: Watercolor '92, Fall Issue; The Artist's Magazine, September 1987 and How Did You Paint That? 100 Ways to Paint Landscapes, 2004. Watch for her book, Brilliant Color: Painting Vibrant Outdoor Scenes, to be published by North Light Books in December 2008.
