Julie & Phil moved from Texas to North Carolina in 2018. They reside in Horse Shoe, NC. Julie is a former city girl and native of Dallas, Texas. Phil is a former farm boy that hails from Rome, Pennsylvania. Moving to Western North Carolina had always been their dream for retirement, and when the time came, they were ready for the next chapter of their lives to be rooted here.
Prior to opening Art on 7th, Phil was a successful business owner and contractor specializing in commercial and residential projects throughout the Dallas/Fort Worth areas of Texas. He brings his experience as an established business owner and methodical project manager to the table.
Without his contracting knowledge and management skills, Art on 7th would never have become a reality.
Julie brings her vast experience in marketing, advertising, design, strategic planning, event planning, fundraising, and public relations to the table. Prior to early retirement, she worked professionally, as a volunteer, and for non-profits for more than 35 years concepting and managing marketing campaigns and events in Dallas.
Julie and Phil have four adult children and are proud to be “Honey” and “Poppy” to one grandchild.
