Julie Frankel’s background is in graphic design and mixed media painting. Julie is an east coast transplant, living in SLO since 1988. In her art she often explores the themes of people watching and narrative spaces. Julie is also a maker of artists’ books—which combines both art and design skill sets. Patterns, stencils, and textures are one of her passions. On the design side, Julie worked as an independent consultant with Biesek Design on many projects for the National Park Service.
