Julia Maximova

I'm a self-taught Russian artist, currently based in the Netherlands.

I love bright, vibrant colors and simple lines. I paint abstract, botanicals and faces (people). My primary media are acrylics, gouache, pencil and pastel. But I love experimenting with different tools and media.

My inspiration comes from the beauty of the nature around me and everyday interactions.

I work spontaneously and rarely begin with a set plan in mind. I let each painting evolve intuitively as I build each layer of paint. My paintings are a reflection of my surroundings and imaginary world of my soul. A place that I can go to escape and be lost within.

When I'm not creating, I'm enjoying long beach or forest walks with my dog Luna, cooking, listening to music and reading.

If you like to collaborate, commission a painting or just say "hello", please feel free to contact me. I will be happy to help you!
