Julia D'Ambrosi's Profile

About

My name is Julia.I am an art teacher jeweler, painter, poet, and actor. I have always been fond of of the Seuss character called the Yink “who likes to wink and drink pink ink.”Despite my friends tall tales I do not actually sip paint and eat shining bead bon-bons,or carry sonnets as trail mix for hikes. But I never mind them saying so.

I think of art as fun but I take it seriously.I take pride in doing original work and selling absolutely no prints.I respect that this is not possible for all artists and prints can be very pretty.But I love the texture and depth of genuine paintings.I love knowing a painting is the only one in the world and I want to give that feeling to my patrons.

I use paint to create interactions.I carve sgrafitto labyrinths for ink and acrylic to run through. I tilt canvases to create drips and I employ not only brushes but also pieces of shells, backs and caps of of paint tubes, lace doilies ,leafs and special tools to create textures.

My wire wrapping is a more recent endeavor.I started wire wrapping 3 years ago.
My are bangles sold in brick and mortar boutiques in two states, but I am excited about using Etsy to reach consumers directly.

Jewelry is art that goes with you. The wearer brightens up buses, offices, and dreary waiting rooms. I love how Jewelry can spark a conversation and start a new friendship. I especially love this as someone who knows what it’s like to be new in town.


Previously I have lived in Wisconsin, California, and Texas. I now live in D.C. I also got to spend a month in Guatemala which is filled with wonderful patterns and hues. So many things inspire my jewelry: impressionist paintings, kaleidoscopes, cacti, carousels, and snowglobes. I continually challenge myself with each work.


I love the ocean so I promise the shells for my Artsy Wampum are gathered in an ocean friendly way. I collect the shells without killing any sea creatures, or booting them from there home. My friend and I once tandem bicycled to return a snail to the ocean that I had accidentally collected.
