Collection: Julia Deckman

Julia Deckman | Charleston, SC

Julia Deckman grew up in Annapolis, Maryland, but she fell in love with Charleston when she attended College of Charleston from 2003- 2007. She decided to make the Holy City her home in 2012, and Julia couldn't be happier about it.

Julia did not attend art school or major in the visual arts, and as a result she is a largely self-taught visual artist. After several unfulfilling years spent in administration, in 2014 she decided to pursue her passions and build her art career. She served on the board for Redux Contemporary Art Center and was named the 2019 Lowcountry Artist of the year by the Coastal Community Foundation. Her latest venture is opening a studio and retail salon in her community, Riverland Terrace.

"I have several artistic directions and use a range of mediums, but the one constant throughout my work is COLOR. I am color obsessed; it's a constant source of inspiration. Bold, vibrant and organic is how I describe my artistic style. My goal is to translate everyday instants into surprising moments of beauty."

Julia currently paints in 3 different composition styles: architectural, botanical, and abstract color studies. This is because she is as inspired by process as much as imagery and representation. She enjoys pivoting from one approach to another. This rotation allows her to explore color in different ways and remain constantly curious and inspired.
