JuliAnne Jonker has been creating art since she was a young child. Growing up in a family surrounded by professional musicians and creatives, JuliAnne's natural artistic abilities were always encouraged and nurtured. Inspired by the Old Masters, she was classically trained in oil painting at the Minnesota River School of Fine Art from 1998-2005. Her Atelier training is evident in the proficiency of JuliAnne's painting, yet there is a contemporary energy in her work that keeps it current. Her passion lies in the figure and portrait with texture, landscape, and rich color as complimentary elements.
