Julia Pinkham has been working full time as an artist since 1979. In addition to fine art, her artistic career has included a wide range of creative endeavors including twelve years in business creating a line of clothing of her own handpainted fabric designs, designing a line of best selling prints for a textile company in New York and creating cloisonee jewelry designs for Zarah Company of California. She has written and illustrated a series of Nature Encyclopedia coloring books for Stemmer House Publishers and her watercolor paintings of endangered species were published as a line of greeting cards and T-shirts that were sold worldwide. Since January of 2000 she has been concentrating on creating fine art.
Julia's artwork has been strongly influenced by the natural world and the ocean in particular. Her current abstract surrealist works in mixed media and acrylic on canvas reflect her ongoing interest in natural forms. Her work expresses a spontaneous sense of freedom, energy and movement.
