about

Julia designs with paper and flowers, ever drawn to negative space and positive outlooks.  She is fairly meticulous, hand-snipping from her magazine collection, mail-order catalogs, and dollar-bin finds at used book stores to compose analog collages.

She grew up and attended art school in Southeast Michigan.  After stints in San Francisco, Ireland, building parade floats in Detroit, and Downtown Los Angeles, she now lives in Tokyo, Japan and studies ikebana.  Her favorite things are excellent fabric stores, green tea ice cream, and well-sharpened hand tools.

Her floral design work can be found here.
