She exhibited her oil paintings widely throughout the east coast and received numerous awards through juried shows and commissions from Paine Webber Associates, the Sawmut Bank in Boston and from the Hartford Insurance Company in New Hampshire.

Following having a studio/workshop and exhibiting in the mid-west, St. Louis, Chicago, and then on the west coast in San Diego and Santa Monica, Julie moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico in 1989.
