Welcome to Juleez! Original artwork designed by nationally known artist, Julie Borden. Specializing in Hand Painted Musical Instruments, Fine Art Paintings, Fine Crafts and Art Inspired Home Decor.

1) How did you first get involved with painting musical instruments, and how has that process evolved over time?

I started painting instruments about 14 years ago. It actually came about from a furniture set I was building at the time, in which I had created a dining room table in the shape of a baby grand piano, (complete with piano hinge storage area for the top) and 4 musician chairs that went with it. The chairs looked like musicians from the front and back, sitting around a piano. When I was looking at the cello chair, I wondered what it would be like to paint a real cello, and so i ordered one. I was living in Rhode Island at the time and had a gallery in Wickford, RI. I painted the cello, put it in the window and it sold. I ordered another and a violin the next time, and painted those, and they sold, and all these years later, I've never stopped painting them.

My paintings also featuring a lot of curvy pianos, musicians and settings and so together, they kind of evolved into one and the same. The reaction that I received was amazing, and so over the years I have steadily created paintings, painted instruments, fine craft pieces.

I love the idea of these beautiful "music sculptures" as i do not play any instruments myself, but i have always loved the shapes of the instruments, and think of them as a beautiful canvas. I think of myself as a "painter of music."

Question: Did you study art in school? In college?
I attended The Rochester Institute Of Technology -BFA double major in Painting and illustration, with a minor in ceramics and English Lit. RIT was a trimester school and had a very disciplined program. It was where a teacher told me,"Everyday you're not working, somebody who wants it more is," and I never forgot that and still live by that.
