Juli Morsella is a world class artist. She became enamored with marquetry in Umbria, Italy and stayed to study under a great master for six years. She does both Story pieces and smaller Hawaiian pieces and now divides her time between Hawaii and her new studio in Umbria.
“I work with wood because wood never dies. Even after sliced into sheets not much thicker than paper, it remains alive, and has to be reckoned with, this constantly having to be in agreement with an element that insists on telling its own story with my story, is humbling, challenging and keeps me linked with my place in nature.
