Julie Greene is that rare blend of natural mystic and savvy businessperson. When she’s not helping her clients find their best selves, she’s busy putting together nationally-recognized art shows for the likes of Orian Williams and Daniel Lanois. The latter’s show opens Oct. 14 and runs until the end of November at Solstice Gallery in Mill Valley.
What do you do? I’m the owner of Frontier Tarot and also the director of Solstice Gallery.
Where do you live? Lovely Mill Valley.
How long have you lived in Marin? I’ve lived here on three separate occasions since 1994, with long stints in New York and LA in between. I’m a bonafide city girl, but the magic of Marin keeps calling me back.
Where can we find you when you’re not at work? Most likely, I’m buried deep in the forest in Marin or sitting on a rock at Muir Beach at low tide. I like to hang out at The Lumberyard in Mill Valley when I want to come up for air. You can also find me at the No Name Bar in Sausalito when I’m feeling divey.
If you had to convince someone how awesome Marin was, where would you take them? On a joy ride in my convertible. Starting at Pelican Inn for brunch, then up the coast for a beach walk at Stinson, followed by a stroll in Point Reyes. I’d finish off the day with wine and oysters at Hog Island Oyster Company on Tomales Bay. Perfection.
What’s one thing Marin is missing?
Street culture and good fashion.
What’s one bit of advice you’d share with your fellow Marinites? Don’t worry about what everyone else is doing. March to the beat of your own drum.
If you could invite anyone to a special dinner, who would they be? Rick Rubin, the Dalai Lama, David Bowie, Jane Fonda and Mr. Darcy from Pride and Prejudice.
What is some advice you wish you knew 20 years ago?
Enjoy the chapter you’re in. It doesn’t last forever.
What is something that in 20 years from now will seem cringeworthy? Facelifts and fast food. Ewww.
Big question. What is one thing you’d do to change the world? Abolish fear in all its forms. And plant more trees!
