(American, born 1980)
Julie Alpert makes temporary, theatrical, site-specific installations using everyday arts and craft supplies and found materials. She notes, “My work feels the most electric when tapping into the earliest techniques I learned as a child in school and summer camps. I cut, color, draw, tear, and glue.”
Alpert was born and raised in the Washington D.C. suburbs. She has a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Maryland and a Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Washington in Seattle. She splits her time between Seattle, Washington, and Tulsa, Oklahoma. She is married to the artist Andy Arkley, and they have three cats: Coconut, Koala, and Baby Cloud.
