These are part of a series of ink drawings done with sticks and sumi ink on 30″x 20″ Fabriano Artistico HP paper. They are based on macro and micro images of the natural world: the flow of water, air, and the structure of cells, rocks and plants. They are some of the work I will be showing in my show at the Galeria Arriba at the Abiquiu Inn for the month of June.

About Julie Wagner
I was born in Wisconsin, and grew up on the east coast, wandering the woods, collecting leaves, bones, and bugs. After earning a BA from Oberlin College, studying sculpture at the Brooklyn Museum School, and receiving an MFA in sculpture from the Rhode Island School of Design, I moved to a rural town in northern New Mexico where I live with my blacksmith husband, and a long series of dogs and cats. My work is based on the natural environment where I live, maps, scientific diagrams and microscopic images. My work is in public and private collections throughout the United States and Europe.

I hope while you are here that we can get together. I have had your print framed and it hangs over my desk where I happily see it every day. Hope all goes well for you, Julie
