Meet Julie Stokes of Artists’ Boutique

Today we’d like to introduce you to Julie Stokes.

Julie, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I followed my heart. My passion is painting, creating and teaching. I decided to fine tune my craft and painted with a Master Artist for 3 years. In 2014 became a Wilson Bickford Trained Teacher. In 2015, Artists’ Boutique was born and I couldn’t be prouder of my Studio.

A must see! As I create my art, I hope to capture both nature’s delicacy and strength. You have the feeling that you are there – a feeling that is good for the soul. The art conveys a sense of place and your eye gathers as many subtle variables as it can absorb.

My work is an examination of many perspectives of nature – a creation that goes beyond and sees nature’s management of all resources. Nature is perfect but never the same…. and so magnificent.

Has it been a smooth road?
Keep moving forward toward your dream. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less-than-perfect conditions. Picture your goal and stay on that path. With each step you take you will grow more skilled, more self-confident and more successful.

So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Artists’ Boutique story. Tell us more about the business.
I specialize in acrylic and the wet on wet technique, or alla prima is a painting technique, used mostly in oil painting, in which layers of wet paint are applied to previously administered layers of wet paint. This technique requires a fast way of working because the work has to be finished before the first layers have dried. You can complete a beautiful painting in 2 ½ to 3 hours. What set me apart from others is oil painting classes. Bring your spirits relax and paint.

Is our city a good place to do what you do?
Location is very important, and yes LA is a wonderful place to have a business.
