Julie Blackmon uses digital techniques to intensify the color and collage elements to create staged scenes of family life. As the oldest of nine children and mother to three, Blackmon uses her own family members and household to "move beyond the documentary to explore the fantastic elements of our everyday lives."





Ms. Blackmon is currently represented by the Claire Oliver gallery in New York. She is in the permanent collections of the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, Kansas City, MO, the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, TX, and the Photographic Center Northwest, Seattle, WA.
