Julie Flandorfer has lived in Texas longer than anywhere else, so she now calls herself a Texan. After receiving her BFA, she worked in the corporate world as an illustrator and production artist, before striking out on her own as a freelancer. The freelance life has suited her well.
It wasn’t until being diagnosed with breast cancer (early stages and treatable), that she realized how therapeutic her art practice was. Often taking a light-hearted and humorous approach to a serious issue that affects millions of women every year worldwide, Julie hopes to help those dealing with breast cancer by bringing a smile to their faces.
Over the past year, she has experimented with stop motion animation, hoping to take her quirky, colorful art into new dimensions.
