I have two identities: Julie Cutting and Julie Lim (my married name) – just like being a Superhero I guess!
Always learning, I continue to grow as a creative excited to take chances into the future and passionate about creating great design. I even pick up a crayon every so often and still make sandcastles on the beach!
