Hi, I’m Julia! I’m a Surface Pattern Designer, Illustrator and Abstract Artist. My background is in graphic design, photography, painting, marketing, giftware and art licensing. My pattern style is a mix of abstract, fun illustrations and painterly designs full of color, personality and movement.
I’ve been creating art since a young age and always knew I wanted to pursue a career in design. About 5 years ago I came across the work of Designer Luli Shanchez and instantly connected with her style of pattern work and dreamed of one day having a career (and studio) like hers.
I’m currently a Senior Designer and Lead Photographer at a small wholesale giftware company. This work provides a unique perspective for my pattern and trend research projects.
I hold a BFA in Advertising Art Direction from Columbia College Chicago and resides just outside of the city. You can catch me watching Queer Eye, daydreaming in Anthropologie, catching up with friends and adding new patterns to my growing library of prints!
