About Julie Speidel:

Julie Speidel’s sculptures engage an extraordinary array of cultural influences, reaching back through antiquity to the stone- and bronze-age peoples of Europe, the early Buddhists of China, the indigenous tribes of her native Pacific Northwest, and on into twentieth-century modernism. As a teenager, she lived in the British Isles and was fascinated by the pre-historic ruins she saw in England, Ireland, and Scotland, including the stone monoliths at Newgrange and Stonehenge. Her work in both bronze and stone reflects the nature of these structures and others she found on wide travels throughout Europe and Asia.

Speidel studied in Seattle at the University of Washington and Cornish College of the Arts, and in France at the University of Grenoble. Her work can be found in museums, corporate collections, and at three U.S. embassies.
