About Me

I'M JULIA SPRINGER

I am inspired by the play of light on the world...

I take photos and then transform them into wall-worthy, heirloom-quality works of art using digital brushes and layering. I produce both wall art and gift items decorated with my artwork. 

My work has been featured in juried shows and in the local press. 

In addition to fine art prints and gifts, I also offer custom, commissioned artwork! You can learn more about that process on this page.

My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.

Each year I donate 10% of my proceeds to Parkinson's Disease research via the Michael J Fox Foundation.



biography

I am a citizen of the world. Born in the UK, I have lived in England, Scotland, Kenya, Portugal, and now the United States. I am a dual citizen of both the US and the UK. Before I started creating art I had a 30 year plus career as a veterinary pathologist. 

Having called Shepherdstown WV home for 15 years, my husband, Dave, and I moved aboard Baker Street Blue - our 43' Mainship trawler - in 2021 and started to cruise "The Great Loop". After some 6000 miles of adventure we arrived in Punta Gorda, in SW Florida in December 2022. We fell in love with the climate and outdoor lifestyle and found a new home in Babcock Ranch. With mixed emotion, we sold the boat. Back on land, I restarted my art business with the help of commissions from some of my most dedicated collectors (you know who you are - THANK YOU!)

I am self-taught, with the aid of online courses and books. What started as a hobby, has blossomed into a small business that helps me to make regular donations to Parkinson’s disease research, and will provide supplemental income to allow me to stay home with my Parkinson’s-afflicted husband.

inspiration

Light energizes me – it always has! 

For as long as I can remember I have been drawn to light, whether it is the green light of an impending storm, the golden hues of a sunset, or the interplay of light and shadow caused by reflected light. I love to see the light bouncing off the ripples of a rushing stream, or reflecting off a window into a gloomy alleyway between densely packed buildings in a city.

process

My convergent media work is not only inspired by light, but truly captures the energy of light:

  • First, my starting point is always “drawn with light” through the medium of photography.
  • I digitally process my images in my “light room” using multiple software programs. I will create multiple versions of the imagery – different exposures, versions that I have painted using digital brushes, digital sketches – and blend these together, to create my vision of the scene.
  • Typically I also add in some pure light from photographs that I have taken of reflections on water, to emphasize the luminosity within the picture.
  • I will frequently emphasize the lines of the focal point, giving a slightly embossed effect. 
  • I often apply a texture to the whole scene, adding a slightly 3D effect and unifying the component parts.

My finished pieces may be produced on fine art paper, metal, canvas, wood or acrylic, but I always choose archival quality substrates and inks to ensure long-term enjoyment. Gift items allow those with limited wall space to still enjoy the variety of my works.
