An example of fine art by Julia Patterson

A native Texan and resident of Arizona for over 30 years, I own deep roots in the American Southwest. I want to capture those moments that have tripped some artistic trigger in me, and painting affords me that freedom.
I have worked in law, arts management, professional fundraising, and most recently I owned my own graphic design business for 15 years. In fact, it was a website barter with a pastelist that prompted me to explore pastel and another barter that propelled me into oils.
One of the greatest gifts of becoming an artist has been learning to see. I used to look at the world but now I see it - refracting the world through my own lens is a joy. 
I am a Signature Member of the Arizona Pastel Artists Association, an Associate Member of the Pastel Society of America, and an Artist Member of the Sonoran Plein Air Painters.
You can find my art at the Southern Arizona Artists Guild Gallery of Gifts at La Encantada in Tucson and my studio in the Rain Crow Art Collective in La Placita de la Luna in Tucson.
