Julie Draeger

Abstract Artist

 

 

After an established career of teaching and painting in a representational style Ms. Draeger has retired and reignited her creative direction by exploring painting from a different perspective. Julie shared her approach by saying, “ The subject of the work is emotion, expressed in color, line, shape, space, and movement. After painting people, flowers, and landscapes in watercolors and oils , I broke free to simplify my subject matter. I rarely use imagery and let it all come from within. When I retired I studied with some nationally known abstract instructors in drawing and painting. Now I combine the two in most of my work. This for me is a new form of expression, very challenging yet very freeing”.

Her world travels inspires her to use expressionistic, bold and gestural strokes of color, combined with layers of abstraction.
