Since a very young age, Julie Hough has been engaged in creating artwork. She earned a degree in Art Education at Culver-Stockton College in Canton, Missouri. Certified to teach art in Illinois, she began working with children in the DeKalb school district where she taught for seven years. During this time she had the opportunity to explore a style that later defined her own artwork. While she paints mostly in acrylics, she has also explored the mediums of oil paints, colored pencils, marker, and collage. During a transition back into regular life from acute mental illness she discovered the Awakenings project.
