Julie Robyn Tucker

Welcome to my website.  Sit back, relax, and enjoy scrolling!  Currently, I am completing a new children's book!  You can view a few of the illustrations under my book illustration category.  "E.J. Dancing" is near and dear to my heart because it is the first book that I have written and illustrated.  It is also special to me because although it is fiction, the characters are taken from real family members and "fur babies" and the storyline contains narratives from my real life.  

I have also been teaching art online internationally and through out the U.S. since Covid hit. Last year, I started writing new innovative book illustration course curriculum for students in China.  It's a small world after all!  Stay tuned for a red and white painting series that I started creating after learning about the Chinese cut paper art form.  I took the idea of this art form and adapted it to my painting style.  Lastly, you might notice that my Ballerina Series only has a few entries....  This series is ongoing and I am currently working on two more paintings to add to the series with at least 5 more to be completed in the future.  Keep stopping by to see how these series continue to grow!

I hope that you enjoy viewing my book illustrations from "Chasing the Spirit of Service" and if you would like to know more about the storyline, click on the book trailer on my main page.  This is a beautifully written book by Author Kristen Zajac.  You can click on her website below to see more of her books. If you would like to view my biography, feel free to read it below.  Thanks and you are welcome to subscribe to this page for updates!
