Julie Abels, Tucson, AZ Member Since June 2016 Artist Statement I’m a wife and homeschooling mom of two boys. We live in Tucson, AZ on 3.3 acres that we call the Ridge Light Ranch. The view of Push Ridge and the Catalina Mountains from our back yard physically makes my heart soar. I love our beautiful sunny days and am always inspired by the nature around me. I love to watch the birds and try to capture the deer in my camera lens. I love to draw, paint, and create.
