Have one in your own herd you’re partial to? Julie accepts custom commissions right down to your personal brand.
Julie Asher is a local artist, living in Cleburne, Texas that works primarily in oils. She grew up in Missouri with a large family of artists and craftsmen who had a love for nature and the outdoors. Her family frequently participated in the rehabilitation of a variety of animals and birds. It was these early hands-on experiences that afforded her a greater understanding and appreciation for wildlife and conservation, something that would follow her into adulthood and her career as an artist.
In 1992, Julie moved to Texas and lived on a working ranch where she rode horses and helped work cattle on occasion while raising her four children. It was here she observed and developed a love for the western lifestyle as well as the history of the West.
She began her professional career painting murals in 1998 and theater sets as a scenic artist in 2007. She has completed commissions for collectors both locally and nationally, and has exhibited in shows and auctions across the country and overseas, such as Montana Miniatures during Western Art Week in Great Falls, Montana and The Cowboy Hall of Fame Weekend at The National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City. Her art has appeared in numerous publications including Southwest Art, Western Art Collector, American Art Collector Magazine, and The New York Optimist, and is sought after by discerning private collectors from around the world.
