Encouraged by an art teacher, Julie Ford Oliver won a scholarship to Manchester School of Art in England, where she decided to pursue a career in illustration. When Oliver’s last child left for college, she decided to go into fine art. She has shown her work in several solo and numerous group exhibitions, and is presently represented by the Patio Art Gallery in Las Cruces, New Mexico, and Gallery in the Sun in Tucson, Arizona. Her website is www.juliefordoliver.com.
