This artwork has a textured background and slight shimmer that I achieved using a bit of metallic powder.  Summer goes away too fast - beautiful sunshine and colors turn into haze and I wanted to capture the beauty of the fleeting moments.  This piece is on gallery wrapped canvas.  The edges are finished with wide off-white cotton ribbon.  The work is varnished and comes ready to hang.

Getting to Know Julia

Julia works from a studio in her home that overlooks a wooded ravine and finds inspiration in the natural order of the universe. Her art draws from many sources of imagery, but consistently possesses a magical and ethereal quality. Whether the image depicts stylized snowfall, glistening flora, or a collaged figure, the work exudes a fleeting element of beauty that transcends reality. Julia primarily creates using painting or illustrated collage. When she paints, she foregoes sketching beforehand, instead allows emotion and intuition to drive the composition. Her collages are influenced by illustration techniques acquired from her Master’s degree in fashion design. Julia likes being able to switch between the two artistic methods, often working simultaneously on multiple projects to keep her creative inspiration fresh and constantly evolving.
