Julie Goldstein’s art practice draws inspiration based on personal experiences that reside in storytelling, humor and whimsical interpretations around motherhood, marriage and everyday life. The stories told are often semi-autobiographical and are inspired by her personal relationships along with lively depictions of women throughout history and in a variety of societies that have collaborated to break societal norms, create change, empower and inspire. In multimedia works on paper and fabric, she mixes lithographic and woodcut printmaking along with text, stitching and embroidery techniques. She has exhibited widely nationally and internationally since 1998, including several solo exhibitions since 2008. Her work has appeared in Adventure Journal, NYLON Magazine, BLUE Magazine, Honey Magazine, Surfline, Surfer Girl Magazine, Daily Candy, Drift Magazine, NEast Magazine, Better Homes and Garden and Apartment Therapy, as well as a featured artist in the documentary Hanging Five. She collaborated with BING, BEAMS, AXXE, ROXY, Alternative Apparel, REEF, Patagonia and VUORI, creating everything from textile designs for apparel and wetsuits to skateboard decks. She has received honors from the Long Beach Island Foundation for the Arts and the Printmaking Council of New Jersey. Julie teaches Printmaking at California State University San Marcos and currently resides with her husband Mark Tesi and son Francesco in Encinitas, California.
