Julie paints living subjects, and sees her art as an attempt to reveal the soul of an individual in a frozen moment of time. An accomplished equestrian, Vargo informs her work with an extraordinary understanding of animal spirits.
... her portrait of "Neil" reveals not merely a face but a state of being, a poignant melancholy that is
at once transitory and timeless . . .
... in “Moonlight Run” the movement of stallion is turned into fire . . .
... an artist deserving of serious attention, and whose future holds immense promise.
