Julie Fritz

Abstract landscape artist Julie Fritz creates paintings that are artfully layered and rich in texture. She often applies up to 20 to 30 layers of color for depth and uses a myriad of ingredients, including oils, cold wax, sand, gold leaf and even marble dust.

Fritz is known for works that include “large areas of color balanced with texture and loosely-defined detail.” She says, “Many people comment that they see something different each time they look at a painting. I love how abstract art engages viewers and encourages them to spend time looking at the work.”

Formerly a resident of Austin, Fritz captured rivers, creeks and scenic vistas from the Lone Star State. She has recently moved to Richmond, Virginia. Fritz has shown her work in Texas and New York. She is also the author of two nonfiction books, Remembering a Hill, a humorous memoir about growing up in the 1950s, and Keepers of the Sangres, a collection of essays and poems about a remote Colorado ranching valley.
