About Jewel

A photograph is not just a picture, it is a captured treasure. Whenever I am taking a photograph, I get totally caught up in that time and moment. It is a place of intrigue that captures me! Capturing the essence of a person, seizing a moment in time or a view never seen is the passion that drives me in my art. My name is Julie and it means Youthful Spirit. You will find that spirit comes across in my photography. I offer you my excitement and energy in creating your lasting memories and expressions. My photography teacher and mentor gave me the nick name Jewel. With gratitude for her advice and encouragement, I am fondly using that name as my signature for all my art.
