Morse uses printmaking, hand-made paper, and collage to explore images and metaphors with nature. Through her work she investigates the history of people and places.
Describing her work, she says: "In thinking about a place, I think about all of the different people, events, and history that have 'composted' to make a place what it is now. When I make work about landscape, I like to be conscious of the the many different people, events, and history that have influenced the modern landscape. It is a garden metaphor to describe how we are all connected."
Julianne teaches in the MFA, MAE, and BFA programs at New Hampshire Institute of Art, and is the Heritage and Traditional Arts Coordinator at the New Hampshire State Council on the Arts. She received her Master of Fine Arts in printmaking and cultural studies.
