Artist Highlight: Julieanne Kost
For this week’s artist/blog highlight I’d like to share with you a truly gifted creative professional, Adobe’s Digital Imaging Evangelist Julieanne Kost.
I’ve had the pleasure to watch Julieanne work, in person, while at Photoshop World in Boston as she walked us through her creative process and workflow when creating visual representations of what her mind sees. The only way to describe her worn and weathered imaginings is dream-like. Her work is quite remarkable, really. The muted tones, the rough textures, the stories that her images tell draw you in and wisk you away to another world which, to me, is the mark of a true artist.
Not only does Julieanne do a tremendous job with her compositional pieces, she is an inspiring photographer as well. My sister-in-law gave me her book Window Seat this past Christmas and each page is filled with colorful, lively yet serene portraits of our world taken from a plane. It’s really hard to describe how awesome this digital photography is but I can honestly say that her work makes me want to become a better photographer. I can’t give much higher praise than to say that when I see her work, I want to grab my camera and create.
