Julia works from her home studio and lives with her husband and 2 cats. She currently offers her artwork under her own name for her fine art collection and is the Owner/ Artist of a whimsical art décor brand called Ebi Emporium.
Born and raised in Brampton, and Orangeville, Ontario, Julia was always inspired by Nature, from the lush woodlands and untouched lakes near her family’s home, to the vast expanse of the Great Lakes and “Cottage Country,” where her family spent a lot of time outdoors throughout her childhood.
From a young age, Julia turned to art as her natural expression and outlet. She attended an intensive fine arts high school and has traveled the world, living in numerous places, from New Brunswick to Japan, learning new techniques throughout her travels.
Now based in BC, Julia finds endless inspiration from the age-old forests, the mountains, and the rolling waves of the ocean; and her aim is to interpret and capture that rugged beauty through varied paint and textural mediums.
Julia’s work is often described as layered, elegant, richly colored, atmospheric, contemporary, and visually textured. She believes art has the power to bring happiness and a calming reprieve to her clients’ lives. Despite hectic, sometimes stressful daily schedules, getting lost within a piece of art can allow one to pause, take a breath from it all, and simply embrace the beauty in this world.
