INFORMATION
Julie Grace is a self-taught artist. She likes to work in pastel & oils. She has been painting off an on for the past 15 years. She recently started doing digitally enhanced photography and other abstract digital art pieces.


Most of her work is in the landscape/seascape catagory, but she has branched out to include portrait work. Her portraits are scanned images on artist canvas and then hand painted in oils. Her six grandchildren have been her greatest subjects to paint.

Over the last year she has begun working in mixed media photography and computer generated abstract art. She recently launched her career as a book cover artist. Her latest book cover graced Robert Dennis Wilson's novel entitled, The Players which launched on Oct 13th in e-book form on the Barnes & Noble website. It is due to also be released as a POD in softcover soon. Watch for his first book in his Dragon Back Series due out the end of Oct or first part of November which I am doing also.

She has been an active Real Estate Agent for the last 4 years and gets her highest satisfaction working with first time home buyers.

She is also a published poet. Her lastest work was published by Publish America in 2004 entitled, "Visions of Apercu" which is co-authored with her youngest daughter, Faith.

She was born and raised in California, but now resides in Missouri. She is mother of four grown daughters, and grandmother of six.

    PixelArtisan: Hi Julie, this was certainly a very nice image and in the right contest it may have done well. This is actually a 3D image that was mis-categorized as a 2D digital painting. This happens quite often and is unfair to the digital artists that paint entirely from scratch. I wish that the site would create new categories of 3D Renderings and 2D Digital Fine Art. It is almost impossible for a digital 2D artist to compete against a 3D rendering. Just as it is with digital abstracts versus digital fine art. In the real world, nothing is perfect!! The lines are becoming blurred. I do enjoy your incursion into 3D rendering. Your images are excellent.

    MarthaHolloway: I have an Aunt and Uncle that live in Lebanon. Don't get over there very often but love the drive when we do. I live in Willow Springs, which you've probably never heard of. We are only about 40 miles from the AR border. I'm reading your write-up and looking at your artwork as it is scrolling down. You are very talented. I really like your seascapes.

jgrace: I love using lots of different software in creating my artwork. I constantly strive to create work which is different, creative and has lots of impact. I'm a big fan of color and try to create works filled with bold color and lots of detail. My greatest reward is when a composition of mine brings others joy. I look forward to contributing to Fan Art, hopefully for a long time.

    My newly formed business venture went live today. My "Entering the Dreamscape" above that won Digital Composition of the Month was chosen by a Christian author for the cover of his new book which I designed. It went live today on Barnes & Noble as a sci-fi e-book entitled, "Earth-The Arena #1-The Players. I am also going to be designing the rest of the novels in this series.
    Check it out at:
    http://search.barnesandnoble.com/books/product.aspx?ean=2940011853647

    He is also releasing a new series called, "The Dragon's Back Trilogy- Book 1-"The Poison of Thorns", which I will be doing the cover art for also. Should be released sometime end of Oct or first week in November.
