First Friday with Julia Belarde of Artful Jules!
June 7, 2019
4pm - 8pm
Julia will be on hand for June's First Friday with her beautifully crafted, adorable, and functional tote bags, clutches, crossbody bags, and her new Artful Companion bags!
Memories are the threads that weave our lives together. Julia’s artistic foundation comes from theses threads of life.
Born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska, the long winters gave unique opportunities to flourish her creative mind, embrace her grandmother's sewing talents, and surrounded herself in her mother's passion to explore all avenues of the arts. These experiences pushed her creative abilities farther than she could ever envision.
Julia’s passion for the arts deepened when she earned a BFA from Maine College of Art in 2004. She was able to refine her artistic knowledge and skills to become a more well- rounded artisan.
Her work explores the concept of triggering memory threads of life through simplistic, usable art.
