Julia is the Creative & Operational Director at PlayArts. She studied Graphic Design at Drexel University, where she spent her co-op with Ralph Stollenwerk of Awesome Dudes Printing. The world of screen printing planted the seed for her love of organized creativity. After four years of freelancing (and some retail work on the side) Julia traded in her home office for the colorful playspace of PlayArts. When she’s not in Fishtown, you can find Julia at her home in Manayunk with her two dogs, Sophie and Oliver, and partner, George. Whether she’s in her garden, paddling on a lake, or hiking through the Wissahickon, she spends as much time as possible playing in the great outdoors.
