Welcome to Julie Dawn Designs

My artistic process began as a young girl growing up in the Texas Hill Country.  I spent countless hours outdoors, exploring and riding my horse.  My creativity grew out of those experiences, with my first artworks being sketches and drawings of horses.  Although I still have a love for horses, my art is now inspired not only by animals and nature, but fashion as well.

My passions are mixed media and textile art. I create colorful and vibrant pieces of art using a variety of fabrics, papers and other odds and ends that I pick up along my journey through daily life.

Book pages, repurposed textiles, hand painted papers, thrift store treasures and various found objects all find their way into my artwork.  

I love to take what some consider ordinary, and often unwanted, and give it new life. When all the pieces come together, something quite magical can often occur.
