About Me

Hi y’all!

I'M Julie brown

I’ve loved drawing and painting since I was a child, and practiced architecture for forty years.  Towards the end of my career I took up abstract painting. I first thought it looked so’s not.  I felt like the business of architecture and working on a computer for so many years had sapped my creativity, and abstract painting lets me loosen up and relax.

I paint when I’m happy.  I paint when I’m in a funk, and it makes me happy.  When I’m painting I forget about the present and paint intuitively, not thinking much beyond the brush strokes I just made and the brush stroke to come.  

I’ve been studying at the New Orleans Academy of Fine Arts.  Born and raised in NOLA you can’t help but be influenced by the rich culture of architecture, music and food.  I hope that this passion of mine comes through in my work, and you enjoy it.❤️

I’ve sold work in student shows and fairs at the NOAFA as well as many pieces to my supportive circle of family and friends. Now is my opportunity to branch out and bring my happiness to your environment. It’s meant to be uplifting, engaging and to put a smile on your face!

My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.


Inspiration is everywhere! Nature, other artists, and on my color palette. By painting intuitively, I don’t think too much and I definitely don’t have any preconceived notions about where I’m headed.  


My paintings are primarily abstract acrylic paints  on paper or canvas, using graphite, oil pastels, oil crayons and a variety of  markers.  I use painted papers and magazines to express my vision in my collages.
