About the artist, Julie Sirek: The issue of domestic violence is a constant theme in Julie Sirek's work. She believes art is a vehicle capable of creating social awareness and change. Art breaks barriers, connects across cultural differences, and engages our shared values. She works primarily with paper in conjunction with the process of Joomchi. Through her adaptation of this age-old-technique, she transforms paper into a unique textile-like material. Sirek has exhibited throughout the United States and in Canada, England and South Korea. Awards include a Jerome Fiber Artist Project Grant in 2014 and a Minnesota State Arts Board Artists Initiative Grant in 2015 and 2017. Sirek attended Minneapolis College of Art and Design and received a BFA in Print Paper Book.
