Julie is a Philadelphia based fine artist. She has experience in photography, oil painting, and acrylic painting. She painted exclusively in oils until 2019, when she discovered that acrylic painting allowed her to produce more paintings and produce them faster. Because her work predominantly focuses on emotions, acrylic paints allow her to capture the feeling of the painting quickly, before it dissipates.
Although she does not have “formal” art training, she has studied art at the college level, multiple times. She has taken classes at University of the Arts in 2011 (drawing and painting), and 2015 (painting). She has also taken sculpture and painting classes at Holy Family University (2016, 2017). Most recently, she has been studying classical drawing with the Sadie Valeri Atelier, and is taking an oil painting class at a local college to ease herself back into oil painting.
Her work has been sold to collectors across the country, and has exhibited in galleries in Center City Philadelphia.
