The Lemon Tree House was founded in 2013.
The residency has had the benefit of a wide range of impressive staff over the years and their participation remains an integral part of The Lemon Tree House experience.
Julie is a Canadian writer from Ontario, Canada who now calls Paris home. A graduate of The University of British Columbia with a BA in Philosophy and Political Science, Julie went on to study Non-Fiction under the UBC Creative Writing Department and has published some of her short non-fiction in Canadian literary magazines and newspapers. While Julie’s main focus is writing, she has an equal passion for visual arts and has also dabbled in photography, film-making & design. Formerly the head of marketing for Robert Held Art Glass Studio in British Columbia, Julie currently works in Paris hosting treasure hunts at the Louvre Museum & Le Musée d’Orsay with a team of international art-lovers called THATMuse. A Suzuki-trained classical pianist, Julie is also a self-taught guitarist and avid music lover. With a long career in hospitality & tourism jobs to support her art, including four-star hotels in Vancouver, fine dining restaurants & cafes in Toronto and overseeing kitchens & bistros in Paris, Julie finally paired her love of Tuscany with her wealth of hosting & travel experience and founded The Lemon Tree House Residency in 2013 with the help of a collective of artists who shared her community ideals, a passion for the arts and a love of great food, wine and engaging conversation.
