Interview with Julie Nellenback Henry. 

1. Who are you and what do you do, and what is your background?

My name is Julie Nellenback Henry and I am a contemporary multi media artist with a focus on painting. 

I am originally from Seneca Falls New York but have lived most of my life in the south. When I was in college I took a drawing class and disliked it so much that I dropped it after attending 2 classes!

In my mid twenties I returned to my interest in art and in the years since I have been focused on my creative process. For most of those years I had a day job. I worked in my studio at night and on weekends always yearning for the day when I could pursue art full time. 

My work initially was naïve/ outsider/ figurative and my materials were things like old pieces of wood found while dumpster diving and $1 per gallon oops house paint from the Duron paint store on North Avenue.
