Julie Ann Stricklin

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.

Many years ago male imagery was taboo. In ancient Europe the male anatomy was often removed or display as that of an infant. Today, many artist have revisited and learn to appreciate the male art form. If you see something you like or connect with make a purchase. Any purchase helps me to continue creating male arts.

Thanks for visiting my page

When I left a Munich advertising studio for Ireland, I dreamed of cheap whisky, hot geysers and a little adventure. Wrong. Very wrong indeed! The whiskey was expensive, the hot springs were in Iceland and the little adventure developed into a big adventure....... The land and it’s people were fascinating right from the beginning and after learning a few words of the English language, tinted with an Irish flavour, mind and soul were cleared of orderly Teutonic perceptions. The wind blew away the acquired photographic rules to let grey skies and green meadows convert easily into stunning pictures. The adventure was in full swing and I never missed the Bavarian studio.

Since then I have travelled to many exotic countries. During 1973, in recognition of my work, I was awarded the honours of a Fellowship of the Royal Photographic Society of Great Britain (F.R.P.S.). In 1982 I started to build up my own Picture Library ( and for commercial reasons, moved to England. Here I soon discovered the Highland of Scotland which has so much in common with the Emerald Isle. The sunny beaches of exotic tourist destinations did not tempt me, hence it is no surprise that I still have not got around to buying a sensible sunshade for my camera. Instead of a sunshade I placed many other astonishing, yet creative ‘bits’ in front of my lenses in order to manipulate my work within the camera. Deception by photography ?

Then came the pixels: Rather than being satisfied with retouching existing photographs, I went in at the deep end and experimented with many different digital styles. The painted effects, created with the help of PhotoShop and Painter software, give a new meaning to "painting with light". Here, photography drifts into virtual painting and with each controlled brushstroke new ideas are opened up.

Mankind expressed creativity in the Stone Ages with a few colours derived from nature itself. The palette of shades evolved over centuries, today even the smallest of home computer, iThingy or smart phone lay claim to "millions of colours". Thus in photography, it is not the camera that creates the picture, but the person behind it - the computer technology is simply a medium helping us to express ourselves in ways we could have never envisaged a few years ago. May my selection of images cross barriers of language and culture, offering only inspiration.
