Hi, I'm Julia! I'm a visual development artist having a blast working on animated feature films and shows in Los Angeles.
I graduated from Academy of Art University in San Francisco with a BFA in Illustration. After school I moved to LA and worked for Walt Disney Parks, Experiences and Consumer Products for 2+ years creating artwork for various games. I then went to Paramount Pictures Animation to do visual development work for 2+ years for animated features Rumble (2021) and Tiger's Apprentice (2022). I then went to Netflix Animation to work as a visual development artist on the upcoming animated series My Dad the Bounty Hunter.
Outside of visual development I like to illustrate children's books and book covers. My first fully illustrated children's book is out now! It's titled "The Mess That We Made" with Flashlight Press. The Mess That We Made explores the environmental impact of trash and plastic on the ocean and marine life, and it inspires kids to do their part to combat pollution.
