"Find Your Serenity" was a true labor of love and expresses my growth as an artist. It is inspired by a song of the same name. I want the viewer to have a visual journey throughout the piece pondering the marks and having their own interpretation. This painting was created using many tools from brushes to trowels, squeegees, and various mark making tools. I think you will love living with it, I know I have!

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.
