  1. Not only are you a great preceptor but an outstanding artist….I love your art and the simplicity of it with a meaning that is different from the viewers point. Thanks for sharing and continue to post
    your art! I love the “First Communion”, so many memories for me.


  2. I found your blog during an extensive google search for artistic nurses. Like the comments from Diana above, my artistic life was put aside when I became a nurse. I spent the first few years of my nursing career in an identity crisis because I had lost my creative side and felt a part of me was missing. I have now made a conscious effort to bring art and creativity back into my life and I love finding inspiring nurses like you who have found a way to coverage the two. I love that you are getting the message out there that art and nursing can and do go hand in hand!
    I too am now making an effort to encourage others to bring creativity into their lives on my site.
    Thanks for all you do. Your work is beautiful. I am looking forward to reading more of your posts and seeing more of your art.


  3. Diana, your comment made my day, and it’s still morning. Thank you.
    Congratulations on graduation, passing Boards, and your first nursing position!
    Perhaps we’ll be seeing your art work featured in Scrubs Magazine in the future.


  4. Hi there…I am an almost 50 year old freelance artist who put my artistic life to the side while I completed my nursing education the past few years. I saw your work featured in Scrubs magazine and I cut out the images and pasted them next to my computer so while I was studying for finals and then preparing for my state boards I knew there was an artistic light at the end of the tunnel…Well I passed my boards, am gainfully employed as a registered nurse, and have started creating again…I would like to thank you for creating artwork that I can relate to and it’s ability to have inspired my perseverance…


  5. J…..Your work is amazing!!! I had no idea you were an artist. I love the way you blend your nursing into painting. You are giving the vocation a voice through art.

    Spring (I’m proud to say I knew you when…)


  6. Juli, you are amazing! An excellent Nurse to work with and a talented artist. Keep expressing your self as your art is easy to identify with. Carol RN
