Juliane was born in Germany and spent her youth in South America collecting experiences that formed her creative eye. In 1970 she joined Pan American World Airways as a flight attendant and moved to the USA. Presently the artist resides in Lakeside, Montana and Prescott, Arizona. Extensive traveling throughout the world allowed her to study and savor a myriad of artist expressions and ethic forms. Ketcher’s art is a creative diary of past and present insights.
She was introduced to fine art through a course at the University of Washington, Seattle. Juliane realized early on she wanted to specialize in mixed media. She studied with many nationally known artists, developing her techniques of self-expression.
The artist has exhibited her work in regional and national shows, is a member of the Advisory Board of the School of Art at Montana State University, Bozeman, Montana and has professional affiliations with the National Association of Women Artists, New York, New York, the International Society of Experimental Artists, Sarasota, Florida, Surface Design, Alpine Weavers and Spinners Guild, Kalispell, Montana and Mountain Spinners and Weavers Guild, Prescott, Arizona.
Her work is being shown at Montana Modern Fine Art, Kalispell, Montana. Her love for art is never-ending and the creative journey is one she cherishes most.
I have always been intrigued by fiber with its array of content, texture, and color. It provides infinite possibilities for form and shape in my art, and I am always surprised by the outcome.
Nature's tapestry is my muse - such an abundance of color, shape and design. I think of my current body of work as layered expressions that explore time's passage with insights from the past and present. I search for oneness with my art and myself and hope my pieces speak to the creative soul of the viewer.
