Julia Watkins, known as Energy Artist Julia(TM), was what many considered a young prodigy, attending NC State School Of Design and taking graduate level painting classes at the age of 16. By 19, she was training under some of the most acclaimed master painters in portrait art at the NYC Art Student’s league. While she studied art, she supported herself working as an international model for names such as Channel and Yves Saint Laurent, gaining important “fashion sense” which is evident in her current art and jewelry designs.
In 2003, she had an epiphany. Turning her back on a traditional art career she began focusing on creating art which emits positive energies and feelings as a means of emotional discovery and healing. The result was an outpouring of unique, highly creative pieces focusing on energy swirls while other paintings delved into the concept of energy orbs. The paintings have often been described as alluring, mesmerizing, energetic, magical, and hypnotic.
Her artwork can now be found in over 30 countries. She has an online Facebook following of over 250,000 individuals. Notable collectors include Deepak Chopra, Carnegie Mellon, Children’s Hospital, and the Longview Museum Of Fine Arts.
