Hi! I’m Julie, the creator of Julie Erin Designs; An illustration and design brand specializing in trendy and modern fashion, home decor and accessories.

I have been an artist since I was 5 years old and have always had a passion for all things creative.

Thanks to the internet, I now have the opportunity to share my artwork with the world.

I sell my art on prints, but also on clothing, home decor, electronics and accessory products through various Print On Demand websites. Find more about this in my shop.

When I’m not creating art or taking photographs, you may find me traveling, hanging out with my cat, friends and family, or spending time in nature.

FAQ

Why did you decide to become an artist?

I’ve always loved to create and since the internet has given artists a great opportunity to represent ourselves, I decided to simply share my work while I was taking art courses in University. Since then I’ve grown my art into a small business and hope to continue along this path so I can do what I love while making a living from it.

When did you become an artist?

I’ve felt compelled to create since I was a child.
When my dog died when I was 5 years old, I used art as a therapeutic tool to work through the grief. Since then, I’ve always loved to draw, paint, take photos, make crafts and do anything and everything creative.

Do you make a living from your art?

Short answer: No, not yet. Long answer: I make some side cash right now but it is my long term goal to make enough to quit my 9-5 and be able to create art and travel full time.

What kind of art do you do?

I believe a great artist can portray their style in any medium.
That said, the main mediums I tend to work in are pen and pencil drawing, digital art, painting and photography.

What tools do you use for your art?

I use a variety of tools including: Sketchbooks, black Sharpie markers, , multicoloured pens, laptop, scanner, Gaomon drawing tablet, Adobe Photoshop & Illustrator, acrylic paints, watercolour paints, Canon EOS Rebel SL2 camera, cell phone camera and photo editing apps.
