about julie erin designs

Hello, and nice to meet you! My name is Julie and I’m an artist, surface designer, and educator from Vancouver, Canada.

From a young age, I was always passionate about art and design, and it has been a constant in my life ever since. Over the years, I have honed my skills in both traditional and digital art techniques, which has allowed me to create unique designs that are inspired by animals, nature, and current trends.

I have been fortunate to partner with Print on Demand companies to turn my designs into best-selling products, which have sold and shipped all over the world.

As an educator, I am committed to sharing my knowledge and helping others achieve success in their own artistic endeavors. I teach other artists how to sell their own art online through my online classes and blog.

Thank you for visiting my website and learning a little bit more about me.

Why did you decide to become an artist?

I’ve had a passion for creating art for as long as I can remember. In today’s digital era, artists have a wonderful opportunity to showcase their work to a wide audience. While I was studying art in university, I began sharing my creations online. This sparked my interest in turning my passion into a business. Today, I am proud to have grown my art into a small business, enabling me to do what I love while earning an income from it.

When did you become an artist?

My passion for creating art has been with me since childhood. As a young child, I felt a strong urge to express myself through various forms of art. When I was just five years old, I experienced the loss of my beloved dog. This event was a turning point for me, as I turned to art as a tool to work through my grief. From that moment on, I found joy and solace in drawing, painting, photography, crafting, and exploring any and all creative outlets available to me.

What kind of art do you create?

As an artist, I believe that a great creative mind can express their style through any medium. While I do not limit myself to specific mediums, the ones I most frequently work with include pen and pencil drawing, digital art, painting, and photography. I also enjoy experimenting with a combination of traditional and digital art techniques. Through these mediums and techniques, I am able to express my unique artistic style and create pieces that are both visually stunning and emotionally impactful.

What tools do you use for your art?

As an artist, I love to explore and experiment with various art mediums. Currently, I am using an Apple iPad Pro with the Procreate app. I also enjoy working with Sharpie markers, gel pens, and watercolour paints. However, my toolkit is constantly evolving as I discover new tools and techniques to enhance my art. To get a comprehensive list of the tools and resources that I use for both my art and business, check out the resources section of my website.
