Hello. I found oil painting later in life, after a career in Marketing, Information Systems, and raising two daughters.
As my website states:
Julie Uhler‚ lifelong love of art inspired a personal renaissance of sorts. Throughout her accomplished career in marketing, and while raising her two daughters, she felt continually beckoned by the beauty and intrigue of oil painting. Since she had no previous art training, she sought guidance at the North River Arts Society, one of the South Shore‚Äôs leading arts education institutions. She continued her study by enrolling and completing the drawing program at the highly acclaimed Academy of Realist Art in Boston. In the Spring of 2016, she traveled to France for three weeks to study portraiture at the renowned Studio Escalier. She continued her studies this past summer by attending the Florence Academy of Art, specifically their month long program in portraiture.
