I love the way that every time you look at water or the ocean you find something new. My paintings are like that. I am always inspired by the abstract nature of the ocean. Layered and textured with bold color, this painting was created with brushes, knives and other tools. This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished white edges. It comes ready to hang.

Getting to Know Julie

Julie Weaverling’s abstract paintings are organic yet deliberate. She approaches her work with a well-developed idea, then begins applying paint. Julie experiments with transparent and opaque layers that metaphorically represent the human condition. She focuses on the idea of compartmentalizing: humans separate their work from their secrets, their friends from their traumas, creating many layers to the self. “What is hidden is sometimes more revealing than what is seen,” Julie says. Through the scraping and layering of color, the artist asks the viewer to consider what lies underneath.
