Julie A. Smith (JAS) has painted for most of her life. She grew up in a family artistically inclined in art, design and music. She has dabbled in costume, sculpture, garden and home designs.
Her preference for funneling her creative drive is through expressionism with oil paint on canvas. Most of her artistic focus is on the natural world. She is self-taught through painting famous works of art. Over 30 van Gogh reproductions were painted by her over a 20-year period as well as works after Burne-Jones, Klimt, de Lempicka, Goya, Monet, Munch, Rubens, Whistler, Velázquez, and others.
Although she had sold her art on eBAY, she now focuses on a few pieces a year. For the last decade, Julie has painted and donated her art - most given to nonprofits for their fundraisers. A few of her selected pieces are showcased below. If you are seeking a silent or online auction piece from JAS for your nonprofit organization's fundraiser, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that availability is limited. Proof of auction and organizational information will be required. Nonprofits with a 501(c)(3) status are preferred.
