As a lifelong artist, rider, spectator, entrepreneur, athlete and arts education promoter, Coan’s experience with nature up close is inspired from a lifetime of running and riding, immersed and moving. Life is a ride, and we seek the rhythm and spirit of energetic progress….the canter, the gallop!
Equestrian roles and relationships have informed her work — diverse and far-flung, including volunteering, donating artwork, fundraising, working pro bono for rescue ranches and rehab, university riding clubs, retired race horse adoptions, art auctions, therapeutic riding, owning and leasing, competing, eventing and trails.
Her first love was equestrian art, she also produces figurative and landscape artwork. Bold or subtle design and limited palette choices express evolving change–transitions in a lifetime. She may explore a historical image, or a portrayal of the evolution of a relationship.
Her goal is to express how the conscious and subconscious setting. The essence of the view, or how each working together on their path, goal or challenge, transforms each other. Intuition and communication guide the emotions, or personality of the individual beast and the intimate horse and rider bond.
Julie promotes the arts as a catalyst for recreational creativity education. Artistic collaborative processes and design thinking are key to expressing creativity, happy minds, USA prosperity, a healthy community, and country. Her aim is to inspire everyone to “create” in their own way — sustainable innovations, healthy priorities, problem-solving for our planet and caring for all creatures and the common good. The intersections of these inspire curiosity to venture out, desire to care for nature and creatures, and a desire to serve. Please let this site inspire your empathy with nature and its creative force.
Get in it by running paths, riding horses, bikes or walking. Make it a priority to help take care of nature’s own art around us in your own way every day.
