Artist Statement: With a perceptual shift, beauty and peace can be found both outside oneself and within oneself...even amid harshness. I paint the experiences I have in nature, in community, and in the spiritual processes that remove blocks from perceiving the beauty and peace in the present moment.

Bio: Julie Guerrero is a multimedia artist residing in Tucson, Arizona. Her art is influenced by the interplay of Nature and Spirit experienced in Arizona's Sonoran Desert and Washington's Olympic Peninsula. A weaving of the physical and metaphysical influenced by her Mexican and Eastern European heritage is also core to the journey stories found in her work. As a multimedia artist, Julie works in acrylics, colored pencil, recycled materials, and digital collage. She is also a graphic artist whose artwork has been used to illustrate the Habits of a Systems Thinker along with other resources for the Waters Foundation.

Julie received her training informally through many mentors, the Southwest University of Visual Art, the AZ Sonora Desert Museum Art Institute, and the Drawing Studio in Tucson, Arizona. Formally educated in Spanish and Chemistry, she retired early from 30 years as a Spanish and Systems educator to focus on Art.
