Julie Barshinger

Artist, marionette carver and performer

My mission…to inspire creativity, push the boundaries in the art of wood carving, make top quality products, and bring compelling stories to the marionette stage.

I began studying marionette carving with a master marionette maker in Prague. From there, I took carving lessons from a master carver in Charleston, South Carolina. After several years of carving, I started my own company, Studio Marionette in 2018. 

When I’m not carving, you will probably find me playing the cello or traveling the world!
