Intro to Alcohol Inks Workshop March 28 & April 18, 6:30-8:00pm $55/person

Nice to meet you.

I'm Julie Pelaez (pronounced puh-LEZ because let's face it, it's a toughie), an Austin, Texas-based abstract artist specializing in alcohol ink & rubbing alcohol. 

Creating art centers me. Frustration, transitions, personal challenges, political divides... whatever life presents, I use art as a means to process, move through, and transform it all into something more beautiful. And who couldn't use a little more beautiful in their day? I love how abstract art can speak to each individual differently while holding a special, internalized meaning to the artist.

Thanks for stopping by, feel free to explore and, if it strikes you, bring a little piece of beautiful home with you.
