Julie Hewett

                  My name is Julie Hewitt. I live in the quaint little fishing town of Sebastian, Fl. I am a mom to two beautiful boys, ages 5 and 9.  I am a self taught abstract fluid artist. Although I have enjoyed painting and drawing since childhood, it wasn't until I began painting with fluid acrylics that I truly started to feel the connection with art that I had always been searching for. 

                   Inspiration for me comes from the extraordinary wonder and beauty of the cosmos, and also the tranquility of the ocean and rivers that I grew up around. I start by choosing and mixing colors, usually based on my mood. I then pour and manipulate the paint in different ways with varying tools including palette knives, my hands, skewer sticks, straws, brushes, gravity and air from my lungs. It is a very intuitive process that allows me to fully immerse myself in the painting. The whole process is also great therapy for me. 

                  I love to hear the different and interesting things people see in my paintings, and also how it makes them feel. My hope is that my art will bring someone joy, a little whimsical escape, or even just some color where a little extra light is needed. Making the world a more colorful place one painting at a time! All of my paintings are original, signed and sealed with a gloss varnish. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or commission inquiries. Thank you for visiting!
