new & now


Big things are coming. My next large-scale, mixed-media collection is already in the works. Newsletter subscribers will get early access, so be sure to sign up via the pop-up window.


My “Fabric of Everything” series features ink painting strips assembled onto watercolor paper with deckled edges, floating in a clear lucite shadowbox frame. Each textile-like design is inspired by how everything and everyone of us is all an interwoven part of the larger fabric of life.

40+ min. "Intro to Alcohol Inks" e-course

Welcome to your new hobby. This introductory 40+ minute e-course is based off of my popular "Intro to Alcohol Inks" Workshop that I've taught in person over the past 3 years, no art experience required. It includes 3 techniques + tons of tips and live links to my most coveted supplies, all for $25. Details HERE.

"Shoutout to @juliepelaezstudios for her Intro Class. It was very easy to follow and got me up and running on day one."

"Julie's pieces are hung proudly in our living room. We are so happy with how they look and the positive impact they've made to the room!"
