HI! My name is Julie Ann Stricklin! I am a San Diego (Southern California, USA) commercial illustrator, graphic designer as well as fine artist. I obtained my Bachelors degree at San Diego State University (1985) and over a decade later I earned my digital graphics certification at The Advertising Arts College (1997). I celebrate my eclectic nature as an artist. I use traditional as well as digital tools.
I have worked as an artist and designer my entire life. As a part of my daily routine I invent new styles, play with a range of media and view the world with open eyes and open heart. I am a Budokon and yoga practitioner. I hike, Kayak when I can and try to work with social art programs that have a grassroots base.
Before the days of digital media, I had to promote myself via mail. I am so thrilled I lived to see the day of social media! I am so happy to be able to publish my work without the expensive steps of choosing selective pieces, getting color separations and making time for tons of meetings.
I have illustrated and or designed books for children, the educational field as well as indie authors since 1985 while maintaining my design client base. I work as a creative on demand for companies across the U.S. who need access to a creative department but cannot maintain a full time staff.
I am always open to any commission or graphic design project.
Come find me in Face book!!! Let me know you found me here!!
