Julie Fiedler is a ceramics artist & custom tile painter whose work reflects the strange beauty of the natural world. Julie is also the director of St. James Santiago School, a small arts and science K-6th grade private school in Lincoln City.
As a painter and ceramic sculptor, Julie learned how to use the overglazes she fires onto her tiles from expert china painter Joy Huttar. She painted some tiles for her own kitchen remodel as a lark and her family and friends responded by asking her to paint their kitchen tiles. Julie enjoyed the collaborative nature of custom tile painting so much that she began painting professionally for clients across the country. She paints and fires her tile from her Oregon Coast studio, surrounded by the plants, birds and animals that often make their way into her paintings and sculptures.
