Julie Corder

Episode 109: Today I talk to photographer Julie Corder, of Coffey and Thompson Art Gallery. She is busy doing all sorts of cool things: She is a fine arts photographer at the Coffey and Thompson gallery; Her trademark orchids are really causing a splash, and she is also really excited about the public access show she is co-producing with her husband on the Gold District. She published a book, Touring The Gold District Charlotte, which will be available on her website.
