Julie Schronk likes to say that she was “born with a paint brush in her hand,” because at an early age she began to scribble, (probably with crayons). She grew up in Dallas, Texas, but it was not until she moved to the country that she resumed her art and began selling on Ebay. She is a completely self taught folk artist with no training in the media. Julie paints three different types of Folk Art: Traditional Folk Art (i.e. Grandma Moses), ‘Black’ Folk Art for which she is most well known (the juke joints, Baptisms, Church Socials and old country stores), and Bayou Folk Art-art that celebrates life along the twisty ole bayous of Louisiana. She likes to think of herself as a “Memory” painter of days gone by because of the farm stories her parents used to tell and her love of antiques and anything old.
