Originally born and raised in Helena, MT Jules' always had an appreciation for art and an obsession with comics and pop culture. A graduate of the Art Institute of Las Vegas, she's had her work featured on the Las Vegas Strip, has contracted for NASA, and Thunderbirds. Her current art is a mixed media fusion of comics, modern art, and digital performance. She's the graphic design instructor of MAPS, and Events Director of the Holter Museum of Art, and photographer for Aggrogamer.
Art is an adventure. Every canvas is filled with a narrative, ending with the re-creation of our protagonist. The story begins with the finding of the materials, and the destruction of something beautiful. We stand on the shoulders of giants, we are not bound to them. Jules often draws inspiration from classic pop culture icons, artists, and artwork. She will then break the chains of cultural norms in her hero's journey. Jules doesn't like to be bound to a single media when creating. Each form of media is a tool; via paint, digital, video, or Instagram, she will use what tools fit into her menagerie on canvas. Her paintings often show her process, vulnerability, and triumphs.

We can no longer dig to the bottom.
