Julee Simmons

JuLee is based in Denver, CO, and has been painting most days since she was ten. She studied at the University of Denver and completed her formal training at the San Francisco Art Institute. She began her career painting portraits and golf art for the Senior PGA tour. She tried to create scenes that are timeless. When the viewer has no historical reference, it is easier to focus on the emotional content of the piece. She loves the Impressionists and romantic perspective of Nineteenth Century artists such as John Singer Sargeant, JW Waterhouse and NC Wyeth. Today’s artists stand on the shoulders of the great artist who came before us.
