About Reel Women

Julie McDaniel was born in the midwest, but grew up in Key Largo, Florida. From an early age she has been an outdoor adventurer and explorer. Fishing, diving, kayaking, hiking, camping and exploring everything from the back yard to the glaciers of Alaska. Her passion to share with others resulted in her being a self-taught artist and photographer. Influenced by the bold infusion of colors surrounding her as she grew up, her paintings and photographs evoke a feeling of a tropical escape. While exploring different destinations, she also discovered she enjoyed writing about her experiences. Her descriptions of the places she has been and people she has come to call friends are just as colorful as her art. Now, the art, painting and story telling has come together in one place... Reel Women.
