JuLee has explored various means of artistic expression for several decades, ranging from oil painting to machine embroidery to stained glass. In 2005 a chance encounter with a pink pig sculpting demo lead her to discover polymer clay, the medium that still intrigues her today.
The infinite flexibility of polymer clay, both in shape and color, allows JuLee to be truly unique in every single one-of-a-kind masterpiece she creates. Her current focus is on jewelry, where her detailed, beautifully hand-sculpted pieces are complemented by unique, hand-formed polymer beads and skilled wirework. Since her retirement and relocation to the wonderful town of Ocean Shores, she is expanding her mastery of polymer clay beyond jewelry. Her future plans include combining driftwood, found objects and other salvaged materials with polymer to create mixed media sculptural pieces.
JuLee has been active in the western Washington arts community for over 20 years, participating in numerous workshops, classes, camps and cruises of like-minded artisans. She was past vice present of the Northwest Polymer Clay Guild and has just been elected treasurer of the North Beach Artist Guild.
