Julie Wirth was a Ph.D. epidemiologist at Michigan State University where she taught for over 20 years. Originally from the Philadelphia area, Julie professed a profound affinity for all endeavors artistic, as well. She lost her battle with ALS in May, 2020. All Julie’s prints are made with Giclee (pronounced gee-clay). It is a process using a 12-color ink-jet printer, acid-free papers, and pigment-based archival inks. This ensures that prints will never degrade or yellow over time and allows for a better longevity.
Julie once said: “I have been drawing pictures since I was a child, but did not take art seriously until I became an adult. Since then, I’ve taken art courses at Kendall College of Art and Design and Lansing Community College. I’ve exhibited at local art galleries and shows. My favorite media are watercolor and acrylics. I love the magical spontaneous effects of watercolor and the brilliant colors of acrylics. Whatever I do, I wait for inspiration and then go with it. Painting has given my world untold joy and another way of looking at life.”
