My work is influenced by lyrical abstraction and abstract expressionism.  In my new series “Love Notes,” I explore the poetry of romance and love. The most natural way to foster beauty and kindness is to create a new life. This series touches on the physical and emotional connections in human relationships. I am fascinated with expressing these feelings in color on canvas.

This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished black edges. It 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.
