Julie Sola | Author/Illustrator of Possum Dreams

Parnassus Books is thrilled to welcome local author/illustrator Julie Sola, who will discuss and sign her brand-new picture book, Possum Dreams

Over the years, Julie Sola has worked in various galleries and schools, selling art and teaching. One stint involved working as a designer and printer at Hatch Show Print, an historic letterpress poster shop in Nashville, Tennessee, that has been in operation since 1879. Her work there involved designing, typesetting, and printing everything from wedding invitations to concert posters. In her off-hours, she began creating her own work and now sells and exhibits at art festivals, galleries, and museums around the country, including the Frist Center for the Visual Arts. Julie begins with a sketch. Once the drawing is fully developed, she transfers it to linoleum, where the drawing evolves as she carves it. The art is then printed by hand. Her latest collection of this unique hand-printed artwork can be found in Johnny’s Cash & Charley’s Pride: Lasting Legends and Untold Adventures in Country Music. When not hunched over a block of linoleum or sketching images inspired by her rural upbringing, she tours with various musical acts–including KISS and Rod Stewart–doing costume and wardrobe. Julie lives and works in Nashville, Tennessee.
