Art Blue
Fine Arts Paintings


   Art Blue artist Julie A. Urtz

With over 20 years of photography experience and over 10 years painting murals and fine arts,
there is so much I would love to be able to create just for you.

Starting out with drawing at the age of nine,
I went into photography at 17 in the US Air Force. After doing this for a number of years,
I went to culinary school to express my creativity in the kitchen.

Soon after, I realized I really wanted to work with a camera, brushes, and paint
instead of working with food, and I began Art Blue.

My experience includes murals for restaurants and private residences as well as sign painting for local businesses.
More recently, I am a permanent artist at a local gallery with oil paintings and photography on display.

I also have experience as an Artist in Residence in conjunction with Arts In Education.
I have worked with the entire 4th grade at an elementary school for one week.
For the past four years, I have developed a historic mural with them
that students will be able to enjoy for years to come.
This past October, I was able to create a mural with the kids that depicts
the local town's history in Patterson, NY and am proud to say
that it now graces the lobby upon entering the school.
Soon I will have some pictures posted for everyone to enjoy!
I look forward to working with students of all ages developing historic murals in this area.

The street art I have done involves pastel drawing on pavement on a large scale
at a street festival done in the Hudson Valley each year.
I am hoping to begin such an event in the Central NY area.

With my experience in many forms of creativity, I have an eye for color and design.
I have used my expertise to consult with individuals with their painting and decorating needs in their homes.
I am available for all of your color consulting needs.
