ABOUT THE ARTIST

Julia credit Elena Kazakova 685x1024 ABOUT THE ARTIST

 

Making art is a calling and a choice for me. The creative process engages my mind, intellect, my heart, and my hand. The practice of making art is the most demanding and engaging task I undertake.

My objective is to be honest with my work, to create something that is true for me. In order for this to happen, the images must be fueled with emotion, and driven by personal experience. When this occurs, there is a connection that is made with the viewer. Satisfaction for me is to know that this interaction has occurred.

Storytelling is a priority, so I am flexible with my mediums, choosing whatever narrates my particular story best, therefore some bodies of work are on paper, others in paintings, or sculpture.

Art making is the fiber that weaves through my life.  Making sense of each day, the good experiences and the bad get woven in, colorful and textured.
