Julie Green is a professor of art at Oregon State University. Green lives in the beautiful Willamette Valley with husband and fellow artist Clay Lohmann and their small cat, Mini. Every Sunday, Green bakes, calls mom, and shaves her head. Half of each year is spent on The Last Supper project. In summer months, Green creates new work, often about food, fashion, and capital punishment.
With over thirty solo exhibitions in the United States and aboard, Julie Green received the prestigious Joan Mitchell Foundation Grant for Painters and Sculptors and was an artist-in-residence at the Joan Mitchell Center, New Orleans. Her art is included in Henry M. Sayre’s A World of Art (Prentice Hall) and has been featured on National Public Radio and PBS, in a Whole Foods mini-documentary, The New York Times, Ceramics Monthly, and Gastronomica. She is represented by Upfor Gallery in Portland, Oregon.
