Welcome! I'm Julia, and I create art for people who want to enrich their space with peace and beauty.

About The Artist

For me, painting is more than a creative outlet – it’s a calling. The world needs more beauty and I feel my place in this is like shining a light in a dark room, using my art to share more beauty.

I was fortunate to have grown up surrounded by the splendor and magic of Alaska. Living is such a beautiful place instilled in me a reverence for nature, as a result my paintings are infused with outdoor inspiration.

The mediums I use are luminous and vibrant by nature, I do my best to use those properties to their full potential, letting the light shine through, striving for lustrous paintings that radiate beauty.

It was in college that I discovered watercolors and fell in love with their radiant properties. After graduating from Missouri State University with a degree in Fine Arts, I worked as a production artist for Guild Master. Later, I painted murals part-time for about 10 years.

The path art has taken me on has been such an adventure! Over the years my art has evolved and I continually explore new approaches and mediums. Inks and resin have become a new passion of mine! I love that they have many of the wonderful qualities of watercolor.

I’m thankful to have had my artwork featured in, The Last Frontier Magazine, as well as receive awards from Missouri Watercolor Society and Springfield Regional Arts Council. I’m also thrilled to have my artwork on display at the Fresh Gallery.

I strive for my artwork to bring serenity to people, like many powerful artworks do. It’s important to me to add more peace into our world.

There’s nothing more satisfying than a painting finding its forever home with someone who wants to enrich their space with tranquility.

It is my sincere hope that my paintings offer you a moment of visual bliss.

Have a beautiful day!
