About The Artist
Julie Feldman has immersed herself in several areas of work throughout her career: weaving, hand painted decorative textiles, dried botanicals, and in 2015, a return to full time painting.
During her 30 years in Los Angeles, she created large scale wall hangings and extravagant botanical arrangements for commercial and residential interiors. Her work was sold at Smith and Hawken, Saks, Gumps and many boutiques across the country. She was featured in Elle Decor, Architectural Digest, Country Home, LA Magazine and many regional publications.
Her current work is usually inspired by personally meaningful photographs, often sanded and muted in between layers of paint, until they are on the verge of fading away, but in the process, strengthening the underlying spirit of the image.
Julie spent 2 years in Paris, first at the American College and then at the Ecole des Beaux Arts. She then returned home to Baltimore, where she finished her studies at the Maryland Institute of Art.
After getting married and having their son Nick, the young family moved to Los Angeles where they lived and worked for more than thirty years.
