Julie Bender - Member Profile

Society Of Animal Artists Member Profile
Julie Bender
Signature Member
Pyrography, USA

An artist-at-heart as a child and through college, Julie Bender earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1980. However, it wasn’t until 2002 that she serendipitously stumbled across the art of pyrography. Self-taught in this medium, her strong passion for it is now matched by the accurate and artful portrayal of her subjects.

Her fiery depiction of nature and wildlife makes an uncommon departure from that of conventional paintings. However, Julie proudly aligns herself with such artists and continues to break ceilings in a world of fine art that is steeped in tradition and normally reserved for those who engage in more commonly universal media – the same world that now readily extends her invitations into prestigious shows and exhibitions.

Julie's work is regularly accepted into Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum's BIRDS IN ART and our annual juried show ART AND THE ANIMAL in which she has received several awards. Her work has hung in many museums and she has been featured in many books and magazines including Western Art Collector Magazine , SPORTING CLASSICS, Southwest Art Magazine and Horses in Art magazine.
