As a practicing lawyer, Julie's time for creative endeavors was often limited to a few personal doodles here and there. Once her handmade wedding invitations started popping up on prominent wedding and design blogs, though, the secret was out. Her inbox quickly filled with requests for her free-flowing calligraphic and watercolor creations, prompting her to leave the legal world for a more creative lifestyle. She enjoys preserving the nuances of each brushstroke in her illustrations and lettering to keep an organic, spontaneous look.
