_TC10764Artist’s Statement

      Hello my name is Julie Wiegand. I have been a working artist in Missouri for over 35 years. I grew up in the Missouri River Bottoms of Chesterfield, surrounded by huge cottonwood trees and farm  fields for miles. I continue to express my connection  & love of the countryside through my art.  My oil paintings and murals express light & color interactions within  a subject. A large percentage of my oils are painted en plein air & I     truly enjoy this challenging  & rewarding work. Many of my plein air  subjects then become larger studio works. I am drawn to simple compositions   & strive to convey  the feelings of my chosen subjects—solitude, peace, joy,  &  excitement—-within landscape, figurative, & still life murals & oil painting    There is true joy for me in capturing a mood with  color & light.

My  work can be seen at Astral Glass,  New Haven, Mo,  Gallery Augusta, Augusta, Mo., Fine Art Ltd, Chesterfield, Mo , Kodner Gallery, Ladue , Mo , OA Gallery , St. Louis , Mo  &  at my biannual studio sales, or  by appointment at my home/studio.
