"Emotional Landscape"


Get ready for an emotional adventure with Julie Dodge at The Sheared Edge First Friday opening, August 4, from 5-9 PM!


A native of central Illinois, Dodge was fortunate to be part of a family that traveled and camped across the country.  She started photographing her adventures at the age of 8 with her Kodak Instamatic 100 camera.


Her love of nature and landscape morphed into a beautiful and emotional journey showcasing images from across the country and close to home (Peoria, Illinois).  All photographs are mounted on wood and hand-painted to add texture and depth.


Julie graduated from Southern Illinois University, Carbondale with a bachelors degree in journalism & marketing.   She used her expertise for 31-1/2 years at Caterpillar as a graphic designer, writer, communicator and photographer.  She is past-president of the Peoria Camera Club and currently functions as their communicator.  Recently, IPhoneography captured her attention and she shares her knowledge teaching workshops.

Stop by The Sheared Edge, Friday, August 4 from 5-9 PM to meet this delightful artist and get inspired!
