In her Phoenix area debut, Julianne will exhibit 63 images in a variety of media, including watercolor, soft pastel, oil pastel, monotype and etching. The work will also be in a wide range of sizes, from internationally award-winning miniature etchings of only 4 square inches to full sheet watercolors, with an image size 22" x 30".

Julianne Ricksecker’s realistic imagery reveals her interest in the rhythms and patterns of shape in the landscape. She delights in the play of light on the colors and textures of rocks, water and trees. She works in pastel, watercolor, monotype and intaglio printmaking (etching and collagraph). “I try to express the awe and wonder I feel through a variety of media on paper. I wish to evoke in the viewer the pleasure, peace and joy I feel when I experience these natural wonders,” she says.

Julianne is inspired by the landscape, especially in the American west and Southwest. She enjoys hiking on well known as well as little-traveled paths to experience the variety of scenes from the mountains, to the desert and the coast. Her imagery portrays locations she has visited, for instance the waterfalls of Yosemite, the vistas of the Grand Canyon, the Sierra Nevada mountains, Big Sur coastal views, canyons of Zion National Park, Glacier National Park, Yellowstone, and the Grand Tetons. Closer to home she portrays San Diego county scenes of the Cuyamaca Mountains, the La Jolla coastline, and the Anza Borrego desert.

Born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Julianne Ricksecker has lived New Mexico, Rhode Island, Rouen, France and Yokosuka, Japan. She currently resides in San Diego, California. She has exhibited in regional, national and international exhibitions. She has won numerous awards for her etchings and pastels, including 2nd Place Award at the 8th Biennial International Miniature Print Exhibition in 2011 at the Center for Contemporary Printmaking. Julianne is a member of the San Diego Museum of Art Artists Guild, the Pastel Society of San Diego, Allied Artists Association of San Diego, and the San Diego and North County Printmakers.
