Julie Barshinger

Marionette Artist, Writer, Storyteller and Traveler

Julie first became interested in making marionettes after working as a professional puppeteer. She studied with a master marionette maker in Prague and a master carver in the USA. She then spent several years honing her craft. In addition to carving, Julie writes and composes her own marionette musicals.

In 2018, she started her own company, Studio Marionette. Julie’s hope as an artist is that she will inspire creativity and bring joy to others in the process. When she is not carving or performing, you will probably find her playing the cello, hiking with her dog or traveling to see her friends around the world.
