Hello! I’m Julia and I’m an artist and musician based in Chicago.
I received my Bachelor’s degree in French and studio art at the University at Buffalo, and later earned my MFA in fine art from the University of the Arts London. I lived and worked in the UK for five years as an illustrator, educator, and writer, before moving to Chicago in 2018. When I’m not making a giant mess in my Lakeview studio, I can be found jogging along Lake Michigan with my husband and our dog, Scully, or making music with my band, the bellow + the whale.
For quotes on commissions please drop me an email at
Tell me a little bit about your idea (size, medium, purpose, etc.) and I’ll reach out as soon as possible. I create illustrations for postcards, posters, menus, web content, gifs and short animations, business presentations, print advertisements, you name it!
