“I have always loved to draw and paint. Once, I remember finding a plant along the river and took it home to draw. In drawing it, a space opened in me that was exquisitely beautiful. That’s why I draw and paint. I am hoping my pictures speak to you in the same way and we can share that space.” Julie Maynard grew up on the plains of Colorado, attended Northeastern Junior College where she attained a degree in Art and where she won numerous accolades for her drawings, watercolors and oil paintings. She has two children: Scott and Sara, and five grandchildren: Brent, Riley, Tayleb, Kyle and Kieren. Julie lives in Liberty Hill, TX with her husband, Herman.
