:: A Stirring ::

My husband and I love Juli Kalbaugh’s art so much that we own three of her paintings! The vivid color, movement and sense of life in Juli’s art captures my eye and my imagination. There is something about her paintings that mirrors her soul and–if I allow it—gives me a window into my own.     ~Miska C. (Charlottesville, VA)

I purchased the painting  “Becoming.”  It is a warm invitation to step into life with arms open to the world.  There’s a flow in the colors that feels as if it’s always moving and becoming more than it already was.  Each day as I walk past the painting, it serves as a reminder to embrace life.     ~Suzanne A.

The best way I can describe Juli’s work is by telling you how I reacted when I saw the last painting we purchased from her. I stood in the middle  of a large gallery, pulsing with people and energy. I turned and caught first sight of her piece across the room. Immediately, I felt tears – and I can’t fully explain why. Juli is an artist who flings around beauty and life with her paint.     ~Winn C. (Charlottesville, VA)

Let me first say that while I have an appreciation for art, hardly do I understand it or see beyond the surface level of what exists. However, one of the first times I encountered one of Juli’s paintings, I was brought to tears. Juli has the ability, as an artist, to capture, through her creations, what words are not able express. The offering of beauty she presents is truly a gift.     ~Rachel C. (DENVER, CO)


    I love living in Durham, NC, am the wife of a fantastic man, and am an artist trying to see beauty and grace in the everyday. I am pressing into balance, rest, sacred rhythms, mercy, and mystery. I love old buildings, cheeseburgers, 80s music, exploring new places, fizzy drinks, and not being in a hurry. Welcome!
