Julie has always had an interest in the arts from an early age. Growing up in Minnesota, she attended art camp at the Minneapolis Institute of Art each summer, where her love of colors and painting began. She has experimented with a variety of mediums including drawing, oil painting, printmaking, pottery and now chocolate!
Julie’s interest in creative arts and the culinary field led her to London, England where she graduated with honors at Le Cordon Bleu with a degree in both Cuisine and Pâtisserie, while also studying Food Styling at Leiths School of Food and Wine.
To continue her culinary path and craving for creativity, Julie’s Chocolate was launched in 2016 to present chocolates filled with silky ganaches, crunchy pralines and buttery caramels that are almost too pretty to eat. Almost.
As a business consultant-turned-chocolatier, she applies her corporate experience coupled with her artistic background to create and share her handmade chocolates.
