My name is Julie van der Wekken, I live in the high desert of Salt Lake City, Utah with my husband, 2 sons, 1 dog, 2 cats, 5 chickens and 1 enormous garden. I grew up in a suburb right outside of Salt Lake and have lived in Utah my entire life. I love the extreme range of beauty that Utah has to offer with the mountains a 15 minute drive from my house and the desert only 2 hours.
I graduated from Salt Lake Community College with an AAS degree, specializing in Visual Art & Design/Photography and have since made photography a very serious hobby.
