Julie Silvers

Artist + Julie Silvers

Art found me, and it fit into my life.  I never dreamed of becoming an artist. I resisted the idea, but I could never escape my creativity. I see art all around me. I see beauty everywhere — nature, style, and design. 

I consider myself  self-taught even though I took a few classes here and there. I was surrounded by art growing up. I would watch my mother, Susan Wittenberg, paint. I would go with her to art openings and art museums on our travels. In college, I took a painting class, taught by Adrian Deckbar. I have also taken a few classes at the New Orleans Academy of Fine Art. However, I have never liked the structure or discipline of the classroom. I learn by doing … I am learning every single day.

My life feels the most complete while am in my studio creating.  I find inspiration in various aspects of my daily culture. I am drawn to child-like, primitive, and imperfect qualities, and I want my artwork to reflect this and maintain a made-by-hand feel.

I have been creating artwork for over 30 years. I have a lot of experience behind me, developing my unique style, and I feel I have come into my own as an artist.  There is a little piece of me in each and every piece of art I create. I paint and sculpt from a place of love in my heart and gut.  My art is bright, colorful, playful and fun, and I want the viewer to feel that energy and spirit in it's presence! I hope to share happiness and joy with everyone through my work.

Julie Silvers is an abstract painter and ceramic sculptor living and working in Old Metairie.
