Julie grew up in the middle of 6 brothers (and 2 sisters) so she learned to play kickball well. Unfortunately, the brother's weren't so kind in their throws playing dodgeball. She found her individuality at home through art. Since then, she's earned a BFA in illustration, illustrated numerous books for many markets, and started creating her own kickball team with a husband, 2 sons and a daughter.
