Should I or Shouldn't I?

Well, I have been told by many that I must start a blog and I know it's true I need to. But I keep telling myself why should I? Who really cares what I have to say or what I am doing? Then I realize how many blogs I love to read every day. I think creative souls do care.

In this world of art and publishing it is very important to blog. I have always believed that us creative types must be there to support and inspire one another and this is obviously the best way to do that. It does feel a bit strange tho.

I have no idea where this blog will take me. I really have no idea if it will remain just about art or if it will go in a more personal direction. We will just have to see.

I suppose I should tell you a bit about myself. I have been drawing fashion since I was 8. I am not particularly girly, I am more of a jeans and tee shirt kind of girl but but I love drawing girly feminine and sometimes glamourous fashion illustrations. Two years ago I took my love for paper, fashion and mosaics and put it all together into my fashion collages. I really liked the way they turned out so I wrote an article and submitted it to Somerset Studios magazine. It was published and from that point on I keep submitting and to my delight they keep accepting.


  1. creative souls DO care and want to know all about your art endeavors and the creative life and all. best wishes to you as you begin your brand new blog :)

  3. Hi Julie,
    Having found and ordered your lovely soon to be published book on French Amazon, I followed a link to your blog and as Mary Poppins would recommend, I am now "going back to the very beginning" to read your posts.
