Julia Scheckel is studying at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee to attain a BFA in Studio Arts with an emphasis on Print and Narrative Forms. She creates images of her own life to connect with her audience over the human experience. Scheckel emphasizes the beauty of the world around us that we take for granted. Having loved to draw from a very young age, she has funneled this into printmaking, but also explores alternative photography, animation, and digital illustration. She is currently the Operations Manager at the UWM Studio Arts and Craft Centre, runs a club for student printmakers called Print Club, and is the recipient of various arts related scholarships and honors including the Arrowmont School of Craft Scholarship and the Greater Milwaukee Foundation’s Dorothy G. and Ruth M. Smith Scholarship. Her work has been included in various group and juried shows such as Wisconsin Prints, the MAPC Member’s Exhibition in Wyoming, the UWM Union Gallery’s Annual Juried Show, and the UWM Union Gallery’s Crossing Over Exhibition. Currently based in Milwaukee, WI, Scheckel aspires to create a printmaking studio there upon graduation.
