Julie Houck's earlier career as a professional photographer tought her about composition and the importance of light and as she studied with contemporary realist painters who based their instruction on the classical principles of direct observation of color, light and form relationships in nature, her style and talent flowered. She studied at the Atelier of Classical Realism in San Franscisco, the academy of fine art in Seattle and at the L'Ecole Albert Defois in France. She has been the recipient of numerous awards and grants including a Hawaii State Foundation on Culture and the Arts Acquisition Award and teaches plein air painting on Maui and in France.
