About Julie Pelaez

Julie loves teetering on the fine line between control and surrender that comes with spilling ink. This Advertising Art Director turned stay-at-home mom turned fine artist discovered a calling the moment she picked up Alcohol Inks in 2015. She combines her conceptual background with her love for color and her work has been shown from area galleries to national retailers like Perigold, Home Goods and Wexel Art. She soaks up life and squeezes out color from her home studio in Austin, TX.
