Julie Costanzo's Profile
I'm a full-time painter living in Portland Oregon. My main focus/purpose/love is painting canvas oil paintings. I also paint acrylic murals in homes and businesses, and take on some specialty furniture painting every now and then. For the past many years I've been drawn to landscape painting, as I'm greatly inspired by nature. Since I started using oils around age 8, it's been trees upon trees upon trees. After being asked by a friend the reason I don't do abstract work, I said, "Because I can't". Hearing myself give up without even attempting to explore the abstract world was a bit of a wake-up call, and I became determined to figure out how to express myself through painting intuitively rather and figuratively. The frustration and struggle turned into love, and painting abstract subject matter has become a new passion of mine.
I appreciate you taking the time to look at my work. I hope you enjoy what you see!
