Julie Nutting"s All Day Creative Extravaganza

Julie Nutting - Collage Couture Artist 

 JN Pic

 Julie has been creating for as long as she can remember. 
She started drawing fashion figures when she was about nine years old and
continued drawing through college and her first job as an assistant fashion designer.
She grew up in the era of he first really fabulous fashion doll clothes. It was a time when
doll clothes were exact replicas of Dior coats and Balenciaga gowns. When she couldn't
have the clothes she wanted for her dolls, she simply made them from her mom's pretty pastel
hankies or fabric scraps headed for the trash bin. This led to a lifelong love of fashion illustration,
design and sewing.

Julie's work has been featured regularly in publications such as Somerset Studios and Cloth, Paper, Scissors. Her book Collage Couture, published with North Light Books has been a best seller in the craft category worldwide.Her second book, Collage Couture Studios, came out in June 2014. Her successful stamp and product line with Prima Marketing, Inc. featuring her mixed media dolls continues to grow and evolve. Julie teaches worldwide and is currently an educator with Prima Marketing.

Julie lives in sunny California with her husband and two kids, which happens to be dogs.
They have an appetite for travel and gardening. When she's not busy creating, you can find her outside playing in the dirt, growing an abundance of vegetables, herbs and flowers, year round.
