It is at first in the Theater that Julie draws what she sees to approach in the closer the universes of the rooms on which she works as scenographer.

As she meets and live with those theatrical world’s inhabitants, new characters and new stories appear. She soon creates and draws her own universes. Her first exhibition takes place in the Palais Royal Gardens, in the Christian Siret Gallery in June 2002. Many exhibitions will follow, slightly changing; without giving up soft pastels and graphite, wooden support then grows bigger and graphism becomes more and more similar to the painting one.Year 2008 ends with an exhibition in the Sorbonne University, located in the Quartier Latin in Paris this place encloses the huge and beautiful Soufflot Gallery where the visitors can discover Julie's most recent paintings and older works.
For some time now Julie was mixing paintings and pastels on her preferred material : the wood. Without leaving pastels definitively, she, however, chooses a more classical option using acrylic paintings on canvas.Between her hands, the paint brush is sometimes similar to the soft pastels treatment, but we can also detect a new pictoral way which reveals other mysteries that the spectator can chose to understand or to ignore.
During the years 2010 and 2011, Julie shares again her time between creations and scenographies. Indeed, in March she finds a place to hang on her paintings in the Cabinet Denfert Rochereau’ spaces while she works with Alfredo Arias on the scenography of the Jules Verne’s event for Van cleef and Arpels in the Antique Dealers’ Biennial located in the Grand Palais.
