Julie Simon's work often crosses traditional boundaries. Her most recent work uses photography much as an abstract painter would use a paintbrush. Color, shape, and movement are generated photographically and blended digitally. Where a painter might use a variety of brushes and paints to layer the canvas with texture and color, she intentionally moves and jerks the camera, capturing frames filled with movement and light. Over the past 30+ years, her film/video and photographic works have been exhibited on national television, hung in art galleries and museums, and won a number of prestigious awards.
She's currently a Professor in the School of Communication Design at the University of Baltimore and directs the undergraduate program in Digital Communication.
