Artist Bio

Hi! My name is Julie Ann Stricklin. I am a commercial illustratior, graphic designer as well as fine artist with work available at the Oceanside Museum of Art. I am based out of San Diego, CA. I have worked on private, corporate as well as community based art/ design projects my entire career. My formal degree is based on “old-school” design so it has served me well through my 33 plus years as a professional artist. 10 years after graduating from SDSU I returned to school to earn my Digital Graphics Certificate at The Advertising Arts Institute. I have been a published author/illustrator for 31+ years. I have been selling my paintings and creations even longer. I flow through projects and medium choices with a commercial artists’ eye. I use what I think will work, what is cost effective and what will server the needs of my vision. I work with all materials in endless styles. I do not like to describe by work with a single title. I began creating “Meditation Rocks” as a personal project. I felt my commercial work was taking over and I needed to exercise and experiment with my traditional skills more. I carved out time every morning to play and flow with no objective other than enjoyment and curiosity. I would leave my “Mediation Rocks” all over for people to find locally as well as internationally. I started selling in shops, galleries and online when enough people suggested it was time to make them available. I now have collectors and supportive galleries who have kept my work on display for over 6 years. Most artists rotate out. I am blessed to have little areas I call home. I have branched off again to include found objects, glass and metal. I still work as a commercial artist, illustrator and designer. I blend traditional art with digital from time to time. I want to continue feeding the desire to create one of a kind pieces that people can afford, gift and cherish as fine art.
