- Nature-inspired art, wearables, and mends created out of repurposed textiles.
- Fine art, wearable art, and mending commissions are welcome! I teach textile collage, mending, and a variety of upcycling classes throughout the Philadelphia region.
Using salvaged textiles, Julie creates wearable pieces and impressionistic landscapes that convey her passion for nature, memory, and creative reuse. What began as a way to honor her late mom and repurpose family heirlooms, her collections now also feature vintage goods, damaged textiles donated by community members, cutting room remnants, and street debris.
Julie’s artistic practice is rooted in the tension between holding on and letting go, of memorialization and detachment. A self-proclaimed 'doula of discarded things,' she transforms both trash and sentimental scraps into landscapes of texture and light.
Her process incorporates elements of collage, applique, embroidery, quilting, painting, and soft sculpture. The "juice" is the joy Julie seeks to create and the "box" is her platform for storytelling and advocacy. Every piece has a story. Every textile is repurposed with purpose.
