"I grew up in Annapolis, MD, raised and encouraged by my creative family. I fell in love with Charleston, SC when I attended the College of Charleston from 2003- 2007, & I decided to make it my home in 2012. I did not attend art school or major in the visual arts, and as a result I am a largely self taught visual artist. I primarily work with oil paints and have a studio in Redux Contemporary Art Center. I am constantly inspired by light and color; bold, vibrant and organic is how I would describe my artistic style. I aim to translate everyday instances into surprising moments of beauty" - Julia Deckman
