THE GOOD OPINION OF OTHERS
Julie is an open and intuitive human being who sees deeply. Who she is shows up in her creative work -- her elegance, devotion to spirit, celebration of nature, playful whimsy and ethereal longing.
Her work shines, dances, and resonates with relationship; it is for me, a prayer.

Julie Brokken's fresh voice manages to walk the fine line between the everyday and
the metaphysical. Her artistic background is apparent in all she writes, a combination of whimsy and experience, depth and playfulness. Her work is filled with color and emotion. Her views of New Mexico's landscapes, both external and internal, are singularly unique and enlightening.
~ Dee Cohen, Poet, Photographer, Albuquerque, NM
Julie is a wild, fine poet.

Visionary, assembler of fragments. Disparate elements are transformed
into beauty, power, and truth in Julie's hands.
