Creating whatever I download from the Greater Good.
Acrylic, canvas, wood, body paint, buildings, trucks, spray paint, pretty much anything I can get my hands on.
I like to think of myself as a “recycler” or a “salvager” of life experiences. When I endure something, (whether it negative, hard, sad, depressing), I extract the opportunity from it, heal through it, use that for inspiration to create, and then give it back to the world more beautifully. I hope to show others that there is always opportunity, in all circumstances, to grow and reconnect to our childlike selves for creativity in all things. Same applies with positive, wonderful, flowing experiences. Nature, the ocean, surfing, and animals are truly the cornerstone of my life and all I do, all I see, and the love I feel. Nature truly is the mother, especially for me. I recently became a mother on September 14, 2020, to my son who was said to be “impossible” and since his birth, my life, my mission, and my new bond to womanhood, truly come alive. I am a motherless daughter that is finally leaning into womanhood for the first time ever. Understanding exactly how powerful and beautiful woman hood, and motherhood really is, has awakened me on a wild level.

ECOSTIKS COMING SOON!
Whimsical layers inspired by our beautiful planet
Raised by the Atlantic ocean and presently living along the Pacific coast, nature has always held a strong place in my heart. I am inspired constantly by the beauty seen on this planet and the wonder of what lies beyond our universe. My respect for all life has been present in my art from a very young age. The freedom of getting lost through color and lines brings me down to a safe welcoming place. The ability to share my works with others and leave a positive impression is my greatest delight.

I most recently began work creating Loud Flower Art Co. here in town - a creative studio selling goods that spark deeper conversations about issues our society and planet are facing today.

“Community is everything”
Julie Schneiderman Founder of StikNStuk
Expressionism, Art that Heals, Art for Change, Found Art
Collage, Drumming, Surfing
A single mom of two amazing kids, with a love of surf and passion for the ocean, Julie discovered her body and surfboard were tools and began to consider how physical objects when manipulated could be used for self expression, processing, healing and community. Empowered by this belief, she expanded this concept in her life to include multiple genres. She quit her job in corporate law, started playing the drums, creating collages, and had the vision for StikNStuk with the belief that you are never too old to live your passion, art heals, inspires, transforms, brings people together and can be used for good and spread love.
