Q+A: Julie March Green

Imaginative illustrator Julie March Green creates friendly critters who are eager to bring you into their magical world.

How would you describe your style?

That’s a hard one, but I guess I would say ‘Realism embracing its imagination.’

What subjects do you enjoy working on?

People and animals. All things can be beautiful, but I thrive working on those which love, breath, and have character.

What medium(s) do you work in?

Paints, graphite, pen and ink, and I love to work with leather also.

How has your process evolved?

I tend to over-detail my work, and was encouraged to paint faster and loosen up the control. That was an important lesson, but I so love detail, so I try to incorporate both. The most important process is to keep learning.

What got you started creating art?

I don’t remember at all! I can’t remember a time that I wasn’t creating art,  but it wasn’t until age 40 something that I realized it was what I want to do when I grow up.

What artists influence your work?

The classical painters, all of them!  Also, in my youth, illustrator Wesley Dennis. As an adult, illustrator William Joyce.
