Featured Artist

Julie Anna 
Julie Anna is a 26 year old art kid from Detroit, who currently lives in Orange County, CA. She is a greeting card designer, photo editor, vintage turquoise obsessor, and the owner of Julie Ann Art!
What first inspired you to design a line of greeting cards?
My Etsy shop originally started out with original paintings and prints. But I really wanted to make something that could be shared between two people. I love greeting cards because they're kind of old school, and not every one uses "snail mail" anymore. I really hope people will hold on to that. In my opinion, it's so much more special than writing on a Facebook wall.
What future design projects are you excited about?
I have been putting a LOT of effort into my blog lately. I regrettably fell off that wagon and it feels so good to be inpsired to work on it again. Other than that, I am really excited to start experimenting with screen printing! I love making cards, but I'm looking to expand my designs to other mediums.
Since I just got back yesterday from my first-ever visit to Detroit, what do you think are one or two of the best places for creative types to visit in Detroit?
I love the DIA (Detroit Institute of Art). It is such a grand, gorgeous building inside and out. The last time I went there they were having an Annie Leibovitz exhibit, she's my favorite photographer.

Many thanks to Julie for sharing her work!
