The geographical location is far less important than the experiential and often emotional content in Himel’s work. Human figures are absent from the picture plane, though presence is felt as the compositions include the ground on which the artist stands. Thick paint extends in peaks and strokes from the surface of the paintings to interact with the changing light, enveloping the viewer. Process matches the artists’ focus of attention, leaving looser reference to peripheral detail. The result is not a typical vista view, perfectly rendered, but a personal interaction between nature and self.

Julie Himel carries a Diploma of Fine Art from Langara College in Vancouver, a Bachelor of Fine Art Honours Degree from York University, and a Graduate Diploma from the Toronto School of Art. Her award winning paintings can be found in private collections internationally, public collections including The University of Calgary, Calgary’s Civic Art Collection, Westfield State University, the Armenian Centre Art Collection Canada, and several corporate collections nationwide. She participated in an Artslam competition in 2016 with an impressive list of artists including John Hartman, and was given the champion title. Julie works from her home studio in Toronto.
