Julie McLellan

Wayland, MI, United States

I have been an artist and art educator for nearly twenty years, and I have a passion for creating art and sharing my love of art with others. My experiences teaching art to elementary and middle school students have taught me to see the world around me with constantly changing perspectives and fresh eyes. Watching students learn and grow though art is truly a joy for me. I am inspired by the environment around me to create paintings that reflect what I see and feel. Painting outdoors and in the moment gives me the opportunity to not only see color and light, but also to feel the environment and try to re-create those feelings in my paintings. I work with watercolor, oil and acrylic paint, and collage to create original works. I exhibit and sell my work in various locations around West Michigan. In addition, I lead "Art: Uncorked!" painting classes at the Seasonal Grille in Hastings, MI and for private events by request. My home and studio are on beautiful Gun Lake in Wayland, Michigan.
