Julie Lluch is a graduate of Philosophy from the University of Santo Tomas. She has had many roles in her full life as a woman, daughter, friend, student, wife, mother, educator, believer, and artist. She expresses both her creativity and her accumulated wisdom through fired clay – a medium which fascinates her because in many beliefs, it was what the Creator used to fashion all humanity. It is an abundant medium in our country, a soft and sensual medium which undergoes a magical transformation when earth, water, air, and fire harmonize with human labor. She is a founding member of the female group Kasibulan, and of Kalayaan.
For her excellent work setting high standards in the field of Philippine sculpture and for enhancing women’s position in our society, Julie Lluch has been duly recognized. Among her awards are: Thirteen Artists Award given by CCP, Outstand Citizenship in Art given by City of Iligan (1992), Most Outstanding Woman Artist awarded by Quezon City Government (1995), Sining at Kalinangan Award sa Araw ng Maynila, given by the City of Manila (1997).
