A dreamy contemporary summer garden scene created in many layers of acrylic paint, acrylic transfers and spray paint. "In a hazy memory of a good time, there is always one moment that's more clear than others," says artist Julia Hacker. "Our subconscious mind plays tricks, bringing flashes to the surface. What do you remember about last summer?"

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.
