The Bungalow Craft
Julie Leidel has been painting for over 26 years, but it was only when she discovered the Arts & Crafts Movement (1880-1920) that she truly found her artistic voice. The Arts & Crafts era has been a muse on her shoulder for the last 14 years. She fell in love with the architecture, furniture, pottery, and lighting that when brought together, makes a house a home.
She was accepted as a Roycroft Renaissance Artisan in 2016. She's thrilled to carry on the century-old traditions and values set forth by Elbert Hubbard and the Roycrofters from East Aurora, NY.
The Craftsman style is about putting your heart in a movement that was inspired by creating heirloom art with your hands. She hopes that you are inspired by her artwork the way the WPA National Park Posters of the 1930s, Stickley, Wright, Morris, Mucha, and Toulouse-Lautrec have inspired her. Whether you are renovating your bungalow, collecting mission-style pieces for your home, or just inspired by the beauty of organic shape mixed with geometric stability, she hopes that The Bungalow Craft brings one more piece of the collection home.
