Julie Crisan was born in Puerto Rico, grew up in New York and has called Georgia home for 20+ years. Julie is a self-taught artist. She paints what she feels and her love for color, trees, faces and emotional states of mind is evident in her paintings.
Stress played a role in Julie Crisan’s discovery of her artistic talents. She used her daughter’s art supplies to paint recalling that when she painted one previous time with her it was relaxing and a distraction. Seen above is the stress-induced painting which captured the mixture of stress and sadness that Julie felt that day. Julie was overwhelmed with her creation and the response it received from others and was inspired to continue painting. Julie’s original paintings are done on canvas with acrylic paints and most are framed and ready to hang.
Art in any form is a wonderful thing. It allows us the opportunity to just be – whether it's stopping to view an original painting, read a good book or listen to music, it creates the opportunity to separate from the complexities of daily life.
I am grateful that I was blessed with the ability to create art in the form of original paintings and sharing it with others fills me with joy. I don't limit myself to painting any particular subject. I just paint whatever I am inspired to paint. Sometimes, I'll paint an abstract as a stress reliever since it is so relaxing and distracts me from everything but the canvas in front of me. Other times, I will be inspired to paint after attending an event or having a conversation with someone.
I love trees, faces and abstracts that seem to call us to look a little closer. I enjoy painting with acrylics, but have been known to delve into mixed media from time to time as well. I just go with the flow; whatever feels good to my spirit.
My desire is to create art that will help my customers beautify their space and my commitment is to keep my prices for original paintings affordable to make that possible. My next adventure is moving to Portugal in the next few months and I can't take all these paintings with me, so this is a great opportunity to buy an original painting at clearance prices. If you see something you like, make me an offer, I'd love to know that one of my paintings is being enjoyed by you.
Most recently I was moved to author my first book entitled Adulting Made Easier which is available on Amazon. My target audience for this book are young adults (ages 16-30).
