Hi my name is Julie Frith, I am a northern California artist. I create
modern kinetic art sculptures, in the style of Alexander Calder. I have
a great website that I made and maintain. I sell mobiles and stabiles that I make with my husband Brian Ladd; For
more information: www.frithmobiles.com.
All of my creations are made by hand, no mass production, custom
designed made to order. I love modern design, architecture, clean
lines, bright color splashes, and mid century homes. Grew up in the
60's/70's surrounded in constant art of my parents. Learned many art
skills and knowledge of modern design and technology. Impressed by the
mobiles of Calder in museums around the world, it influenced my art love forever.
Pastels On the Plaza 2008. I decided to draw a square, after walking around and seeing a few empty squares. I had an hour and a half to burn, so why not do it. The coordinator was still there, so I asked to jump in, since I was an artist...you can draw for free. So she gave me two boxes of pastels, and I used every bit, rubbing the crumbs into the concrete. The first red petal was one stick! Theme.... well, I am always thinking of mobiles .... :)
