A couple of weeks ago, I photographed one of my favorite Alaskan artists, Julie Decker. Julie was kind enough to allow me to take her portrait for my upcoming book, a portrait book of Alaskans that will be released in the fall of 2013 through UA Press. Ash and I love her work, and we even have one of her pieces hanging in our kitchen. (To see some of her work, go here.)
In addition to being fantastic painter, she has also written and edited several books pertaining to art and architecture, and she is currently the chief curator of the Anchorage Museum. In 2004, Julie was recognized with her father, Don Decker, for her "selfless dedication and support of artists, art patrons and art collectors." I am honored to include her in the book.
Ash and I love art and artists and especially those who support other artists, so thanks again, Julie!
