Julianna is an experimental, self-taught artist.
She dabbles in anything and everything with color and texture; paper, wax, fabric, inks, acrylics, collage, watercolor, and even broken metal. She is inspired by Gustav Klimt's decorative, eclectic, gold, masterpieces; Georgia O' Keefe's enlarged, simplified flowers; Frida Kahlo's folk-inspired, magical realism, and Van Gogh's bold expressed emotion. She is constantly learning new techniques, and is inspired by her beautiful granddaughter who she spends hours in the garden with, chatting, digging in the earth, while making up imaginary stories.
Julianna is a certified Yoga Instructor, an avid reader, world traveler, writer, gourmet cook, and singer.
Her real passion is art, and creating beautiful things to look at and admire, and make people think.
Julianna captures the ethereal, fragile and majestic images of nature, the feminine form, and the universe. Her surrealistic and whimsical depictions of animals, nature and the illumination of the universe has generated a large fan base, and in her gallery and art showings
She has won several awards for her enchanting visions of feathers, seahorses, and dragonflies enveloped in saturated colors, and her textured, multicolored visions of the ecosystems of the forest and living organisms.
She is inspired by nature and the mystical and powerful part that exists in all things of the earth and beyond.
