Julie Tucker-Demps - Impressionist Painter
A native of New Orleans, Louisiana, Julie Tucker-Demps began her career 25 years ago in Atlanta, Georgia. A serious back injury from a car accident in 1990, presented this woman with a lot of free time. Self taught, Tucker-Demps' work has been collected, and exhibited locally and nationally. Tucker-Demps’ choice of Impressionism in style came after years of studying techniques, and Art History. Studying under such artists as the late Carl Owens, and many other gifted Atlanta artists, she knows there is always room for growth, and seeks only growth and more time to live and share her work. She has always had a desire to be an artist, and knowing now the true meaning of "prosperity", Tucker-Demps embraces a lifelong dream, and encourage others to follow their dreams. Her daughter has been a great inspiration to her as well. By example, she hopes to show her the importance of hard work, commitment to ones dream and a desire to go beyond your comfort zone. She knows she has a long way to go, and she just wants to paint, love, and live with a free heart, open to share. Demps has a desire to travel and capture as much of the beauty of nature as possible. Tucker-Demps has traveled the world via the US Navy. Having spent several months in Alaska, she now resides in Douglasville Georgia.
