The Straight Facts:

Jules GisslerJules, originally a Montana girl, graduated in Graphic Design from Montana State University, Bozeman. Her creativity has stretched in several directions. Jules’ hand-painted pillows with beads and conversational charms were sold in retail shops such as Barneys New York, Ballard Designs catalog, ABC Carpet & Home-New York, and The American Craft Museum. One of her pillow designs also became a hand-painted canvas doll, the “Baby Angel,” which celebrates individuality. Currently, her line of prints, giclees, cards, calendars, or paintings can be seen at The MN Collection at the Scottsdale Design District, Cornelia Park, Marta Stafford Fine Art, SW Gardener, Write-Ons, Paper Joy, Paper Place, La Grande Orange, AZ Foothills Pet Resort, Bees Knees, Shemer Art Center and Museum, and Tempe Arts Center. Two paintings by Jules, “Hope” and “Joy,” are both permanently displayed in the new surgery waiting area at Banner Good Samaritan Hospital in Phoenix.

When not painting whimsical art or adding her signature designs to greeting cards, fabrics, pillows and slipcovers, she produces jewelry for her line, J Period, which is known for the ziG bracelet and belt that is made with pearls and hardware: www.jperioddesign.com. Jules has also written and illustrated a kick-ass gift book for people pushing forward through life’s transitions called, “Getting Your Magic Back”. Please visit: www.GettingYourMagicBack.com to purchase her book or prints. Her blog is also available on the website. Please read & share her blog about life “stuff” the past 7 years to present day.

Jules has lived in several cities, but Phoenix, Arizona, has been her home the past several years. She continues to be inspired by her daughter, Anna, her rescue dog, Harper, and her eclectic group of very cool pals.
