Born and raised in NJ, Julie Wions, discovered her fondness for the arts early in life.  Her first love, visual art, earned her multiple awards, publications, and exhibition displays, along with a scholarship to the School of Fine Arts at the University of Hartford. In 2008, Julie founded Creations by Julie LLC (CBJ) as a way to integrate her skills through the printing/marketing of her illustrations on merchandise. CBJ also serves as an outlet for Julie’s altruistic nature, as a percentage of all profits are donated to the ALS Association.  While artistically fulfilled, Julie soon became eager to explore additional mediums, as she headed to NYC to pursue a modeling career. Julie was accepted into several agencies and found success booking commercial and catalog work, which soon led to an interest in acting.

Julie currently resides in L.A., where she studies with Krater Studios.  Here, she has found success with a variety of artistic outlets, from acting and modeling, to visual art and photography.  She has been involved on projects with Spike Lee, John Leguizamo, and Hillary Swank, being cast on the spot for a series regular in the pilot, “The Keystroke Killers”, and her current work on several projects, including a web-based comedy series.  You can also see Julie’s face in commercials for USA Today, Tachi Palace Casino, and as a hair model in print ads for 729 Beauty Salon. In her free time, Julie is an active volunteer, always seeking opportunities to make a positive difference throughout her community.  She regularly helps prepare meals for the homeless and assists in leading free art sessions at the Midnight Mission.   She plans on continuing her volunteer efforts while fulfilling her dreams in the visual and performing arts.
