Announcement   Preserving flowers from your most meaningful occasions into heirloom fine art paintings made with a piece of your heart to capture the moments that matter most. Shipping worldwide.

It all started with my wedding flowers and the desire (perhaps obsession) to preserve them in a beautiful way. As the pieces unfolded, I saw the memories of family, togetherness, and joy from that special day re-emerging and living on; being immortalized.

Daily, as I work and reflect on the pieces, they serve as a connection to the moments that matter most in my life. They give me strength in rough times and keep me grounded and connected to my roots, family, and homeland.

We all need that connection… those roots.

My work acknowledges and honors the meaningful moments that define who we are; the constant transformation and fragments of a unique life story.

It is my hope is that you will draw joy, resilience, and bravery from this art to pursue new horizons as well as celebrate the chapters of your own life.

About

Art Made of Stories | Flower Preservation into heirloom paintings that capture the moments that matter most

Hi! I am Juli, a natural born helper, idealist, and creator. I like to say that I’m composed of equal parts sentiment, compassion and goofiness. I’m incredibly serious about fully feeling and witnessing the life experience.

Originally from Bogotá, Colombia -- a city in the mountain valleys of the Andes in South America -- I’ve since made a home in Houston, Texas. This transition as an immigrant has sparked an enduring passion for the concept of home and a need to continuously explore and express my roots.

My art is made of stories that connect me to what matters most, from the deep and meaningful to the quirky and goofy moments that warm up my silly heart. When I create, I get filled with emotions about the people I love, I remember moments I had not thought about in decades and I find a way to stay connected to the moments that built me and that give me courage when I need it.

There is also a transformative side to my work, making art from fragmented pieces of my life is an acknowledgement to my heritage and the journey of life in general.

I love expressing myself and connecting with other sentimental souls across different artistic avenues:

Flower Preservation Heirloom Art: Immortalizing memories from important life moments with art crafted with pieces of your heart and flowers that can tell your own story and take you home to what matters most.

It all started with my wedding flowers and the desire (perhaps obsession) to preserve them in a beautiful way. As the pieces unfolded, I saw the memories of family, togetherness, and joy from that special day re-emerging and living on; being immortalized.

I spend most of my free time with my rock, Shawn (who drills, sands and approves projects upon request), training Capoeira (a Brazilian martial art filled with expression and African heritage, music and strength) and more often than not, pretending to be a couch for one or three rescued cats that boss me around.

I love uplifting animated films, traveling to new places every year, photography, reading science fiction, knitting, discovering new music, learning new languages, napping with the kitties and taking long walks.
