Guest blogger Cindy Chaffin recently paid a visit to Art Conspiracy participating artist Julia Schloss’ home studio to shoot the above video. She passes along this report from her trip:
Driving down the tiny country roads on my way to Julia Schloss’ home studio, I grinned a little at the thought of what a city-gal I am and how I could never live way out in the sticks like Julia. Then I turned on to her property and everything changed.
Julia and her husband, Lee, have transformed a nice, pretty piece of property into an absolute paradise. Sparkling ponds full of pet turtles, several rustic buildings (including their home, and both their studios), and rolling hills make up this gorgeous oasis.
Julia’s art is comprised of found things. When I say found, I mean anything, anywhere – be it the side of the road, inside a dumpster or something that blew on to her property. Each piece is unusual and always quite lovely.
Art&Seek was welcomed into the tranquil and peaceful place where she creates her art. Please enjoy the artist studio tour with Julia Schloss. And to take a trip inside the studios of other North Texas artists, visit our Artist Studio Tour.
