...Julie Newdoll merges life science and culture, myths and molecules in her paintings, music, journal covers and science games.
Julie Newdoll has been painting in oils since 1976. Torn between art and science in college, she ended up with a degree in Microbiology, and a minor in art. Following this, she received a masters in Medical Illustration. The world of microscopic images and molecules first appeared in her artwork in 1990, while she was employed as a scientific visualization specialist at the University of California at San Francisco. Following this experience, she spent a few years as the Supervising Technical Director at Tippett Studio, directing the lighting for the special effects in films such as Starship Troopers. Currently, she is pursuing art full time in her company "Brush with Science".
While Julie Newdoll was growing up, Ron ran his own recording studio.

Julie Newdoll paints the seen and unseen, real and unreal, as one.
Artist Julie Newdoll sees the world from a vantage point that is hard for many of us to conceptualize. Through her paintings, Julie has found a medium for marrying science and human mythology in a parallel and brilliant way that portrays the microscopic and macroscopic views of life together as one, showing just how unified life really is.
Through Julie's Eyes Julie was born in hot San Angelo, TX and moved shortly thereafter to a suburb just outside of Dallas called Garland. She feels lucky that around the age of 10 years old, her parents got smart and moved from Texas back to California, from where they both originated. Julie's 30-year and counting love for painting started when she was in high school and first tried her hand at oil painting. She also had a fascination with science, which led her to obtain her microbiology degree from the University of San Francisco. After that, she went straight into getting her medical illustration masters degree at USF. It was here that computer graphics caught her attention. Combined with the incredible research that was being conducted by the microscopic division, and molecular graphics, Julie saw the potential for art. Newdoll's art' She took the microscopic imagery and composited it on a computer with a sketch. She then printed the image on canvas and painted over it. From that point on, Julie was enthralled by the possibilities of combining science and art.
"Red, right…" replies Julie as she heads off in search of the requested paint. Not only does Julie have a talent of her own, but she's also passed it on to Sophia, who has become involved with Julie's work in a most peculiar way.
Once upon a time, a client of Julie's wanted a painting done relating to her breast cancer research. The client was very intrigued with the mythology and figures that Julie uses in her art and was wondering if there might be a way for Julie to combine breast cancer science and Inuit Indian mythology (the patron's favorite culture).
"So I started looking into their culture and it's very interesting," says Julie.
"Kids do everything in one stroke, they don't make a mistake, they just do it," says Julie.
Julie now regularly consults Sophia for the Inuit artwork.
says Julie.
"She has this great technique where she uses charcoal and then she puts paint on top, smudging the charcoal," explains Julie, as she watches Sophia aggressively making little marks all around her drawing with the charcoal. "Oh! It's raining today! exclaims Julie. "No, it's snowing," Sophia calmly corrects her. "See that's the thing with kids, you never know what's going to happen; that's what's been so neat about each and every drawing that she's done. No matter what I might be thinking it's going to be, it's never the same; it's always something different with new elements in it that are quite inspirational and have taught me a lot," says Julie.
Through the Eyes of Science
Julie Newdoll's Kimono Series Sophia and Julie took us downstairs where at least 30 of Julie's paintings line the walls of her house. Julie often creates series of five paintings at a time, such as her "Kimono" series.
"The Japanese tea ceremony involves using all of your senses so it was the perfect backdrop for the 'Senses' series. Each kimono represents the tissues from one of the senses and cells involved in receiving each sense. You've got these tendril-like things that receive smell and these little tendril-like things that also receive taste, they're all related through evolution. What you use to see with also has a similar look - rods and cones are just cilia too. They may have all evolved from one sense or receiving thing - sort of re-using the technology," says Julie.
Julie Newdoll's 'Senses' Kimono series
Julie paints with oils but often finds herself doing a mixed media type of thing, using textures underneath the paint. Crushed stone and sand are an example of what she may use, as shown in her "Dine" (Navajo Indians) series of five paintings, which combine scientific thoughts on the origin of life with the Dine creation story.

"I mixed a bunch of sand in with the paint around the outside, and used dirt in the middle of each of the Dine paintings. I got the dirt from the Dine area several years ago when I was traveling around the desert," says Julie. "I've had these bottles of dirt forever! My college roommate and I drove around the desert drinking iced tea and we would see by the side of the road these incredible colors of dirt and I would shout, 'Stop!' And I'd get out my bottle and scoop up some dirt: red, purple, yellow. And in the Indian story they start in a red world, and then move on to a blue world, then to yellow. As they move from world to world it gets more sophisticated and they meet Julie Newdoll sand bottle for art, and FAR Tag application more sophisticated beings and become more so themselves, so it's very evolutionary orientated. Not only do they have rivers running through it and drying up and making this cell-dividing thing, they end up on an island in the end. Sort of like a cell with a nucleus."
Julie is also in the middle of painting her taste-bud table top series. You can see more of these series at Julie's website
Through the Eyes of the Public Julie is well known in her field. In fact there is a movement in scientifically inspired art, known as bio-art or sci-art, which is making her kind of work more popular. Her paintings have appeared on the cover of numerous science magazines. Julie is also the Exhibits Director for YLEM. YLEM is a San Francisco based organization for artists using science and technology ( At time of this writing Julie was deeply involved in the "Hitchhikers in the Valley of Heart's Delight" project for the Inter Society for the Electronic Arts ZeroOne Global Festival of Art on the Edge at the San Jose Museum of Art. (This whole project has been thoroughly covered on the FAR website: Famous Hitch Hikers' Safety Assured by Fine Art Registry™ Tags).
It was through the Hitchhikers project that Julie first came into contact with the Fine Art Registry, as one of the artists involved, Jim Pallas, had found FAR and was enthusiastically tagging and registering his artwork.

Already Julie has a very large body of work and she has so many projects going in so many directions that it's hard to keep track. Registering her works with FAR, along with transfer of ownership when she sells her pieces, will help bring order to her art and maintain a permanent record for the future-a future that is positively bubbling over with different possibilities.

"Once I started doing this it was like a never ending amount of subject matter that I just can't stop," says Julie. Her art is continually evolving as time goes by and will no doubt continue to shed light on the world from the small and large, real and mythical, as one.
Julie sent us her favorite quote about art from the bookThe Art Spirit by Robert Henri.

Julie is a real trooper, I tell you.My hat is off to her and the others involved.
Jim Pallas created the wooden hitchhikers and sent Lee to Julie Newdoll's San Carlos, CA studio.
William was also shipped to Julie Newdoll's by Jim Pallas.

Julie Newdoll
Life science, mythology and culture merge in the paintings of Julie Newdoll. She believes that biological systems and ancient cultures, their myths, and legends, have evolved in similar ways; that they reflect each other, and speak from our deepest roots. Inspired by nature on a small scale, she incorporates the delicate images captured with a microscope in many of her compositions. Others pieces explore structures of macromolecules such as DNA, RNA, and proteins using human figures to represent their building blocks, tenuous connections, balance, energy, and relation to our lives. Myths become analogies for processes such as mitosis in her latest series, Plato Dreaming, Cell Dividing. Bio: The artwork of Julie Newdoll has been featured on many journal covers, including Nature Reviews Genetics, and art publications such as Art Business News. Upcoming shows are at the New York Hall of Science and the Florence Biennale. Recent shows include the Triton Museum of Art's Rose Shensen Gallery, Stanford University, Geron Corporation and Millennium Pharmaceuticals. She completed a residency in the Czech Republic under the curator of the Modern Art Exhibits of the National Gallery in Prague. She has a B.A. in microbiology from the UC Santa Barbara, and an M.S. in medical illustration from the UC San Francisco. She is Director of Exhibits of YLEM, and Vice President of the South Bay Area Women's Caucus for Art.
