Julie Erin Designs - About

About the Artist

Bio - Julie Erin Ehrmantraut

I reside in Vancouver, Canada, and have been making art since I was 5 years old.
Inspirations include my family and friends, fashion, travelling, the city, and the beautiful nature that surrounds me here in British Columbia.
I enjoy being creative in a variety of ways, artistically but also in life in general.
I have recently completed a degree in Visual Arts and hope to pursue a creative career alongside my professional career.

My practice involves abstraction and the breaking down of boundaries between reality and illusion.
Through layering, pattern, obsession, and perfectionism-expressed over a variety of media-my artwork aims to connect with the viewer and communicate a message or simply a feeling.
I create art in order to make sense of a world full of near constant distraction, and to create a space in which to meditate on the unseen and the indescribable.
I am inspired by environmental issues as well as issues of contemporary femininity, fashion, pop culture, and my home city of Vancouver.
