About the Artist

Julie has been a photographer her whole life. As her life evolved, so did her photography, from friends, to children, to families, to landscapes, and now the environment. She owns a small plant nursery and photographs every cycle of the plants. She is also a graphic designer, environmental educator, and mom to four grown kids.

 

 

Artist's Statement

I discovered this mystery plant which of course I thought was a weed, as it may be to some people.. But after I researched, I found out what a neat plant it was! I started collecting the pods, tasting the fruit, and found the cool skeleton shell really interesting. I have two photos that would be good for submission, one of the complete cycle of the plant and the other of a silhouette of a one.
