Being creative has been an important aspect of Julie Burke’s world for most of her life. Living in the beautiful Rideau Lakes area, Julie constantly finds herself in awe of the beauty of nature all around. Her desire to pay homage to the magic of her surrounding landscapes, through all of Canada’s seasons, provides a never-ending source of inspiration. She finds herself witness to a constant array of nature’s stunning images that unrelentingly demand to be translated onto canvas. Working her keen eye for colour and light, she brings the beauty and magic of nature into her work.
“I’m constantly coming across those scenes in my world that stop me in my tracks. The raw beauty leaves me totally awestruck at times and I literally feel it manifest in my gut. I have a strong need and necessity to express it and words simply aren’t enough.”
Julie paints out of her studio in Perth, ON. Her artwork can be found in private collections in Canada, the United States, the Caribbean, Norway and the UK.
