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.
