Julie Lewis’ positive, sparkly disposition was a natural fit for teaching art lessons to children and adults across Canada and beautiful Italy. In 2002, Julie started SassyTuna Studio. Understanding the need for quality, having studied at top art colleges such as Grenfell, Sheridan, and Algonquin, as well as Dalhousie University, Julie invests a variety of art techniques to create a well-rounded creative experience. She completes thousands of art pieces every year, from digital art to murals to portraiture, in graphite, pastel, watercolour and acrylic paint. Ms. Lewis completed a Diploma from Algonquin College in Ottawa (Animation) in 2002, completed Art Studies at Sheridan College (2000), and studied Fine Arts at Grenfell College (1999). She worked at such television studios as Spumco, Amberwood and Boomstone (for the Family Channel), and in computer game design with Dalhousie University.
