Julie Mitchell Spirit Figures Artist
I took this photo of my friend and artist Julie Mitchell at the opening of Sierra Art Trails Reception. I love the colors and the detail of her spirit figures, each one has a story to tell. You can find more of her work at Timberline Art Gallery in Oakhurst. The first week-end in October is the Sierra Art Trails Home Studio Tour.. I have to miss this year because of a prior commitment to quilt with 9 friends at the Ocean.. After 5 years of being a participant, I am sorry that I will not be here. Julie will have a group of wonderful artists at her home studio off of HWY 41 in Coarsegold, pick up a catalog and just follow the orange signs with the numbers of the studios.
I am a mixed media fiber/quilt artist who loves to work with gourds,and jewelry. I am easily distracted with the next project, and have many going at one time. I have been teaching Fabric Dyeing and Beginning gourd art for many years. I am blessed with my own home studio. We live in the rolling hills near Yosemite National Park, in central Calif. U.S.A. This is a place of Inspiration, Blue Skies and Great Friends. I volunteer with several organizations,and have memberships in P.E.O., Coarsegold Historical So., Sierra Art Trails, Madera Circle Gallery, Yosemite Western Artist, Timberline Gallery and Sierra Mountain Quilters. I teach at my home studio and at local quilt gatherings.
