Julia’s favorite thing about being an illustrator is getting to encourage and inspire others with her art. She loves colored pencils, and the challenge to keep improving as an artist. Since moving to Austin in 2014, she spends most nights drawings after the kids go to bed. When not drawing, she is either homeschooling her two boys, going to the gym, hiking, listening to an art podcast, or exploring the Texas hill country with her husband and boys. Julia has a B.A. in studio art with a biology minor from Virginia Tech.
