ARTIST JULIE WATERKOTTE
HI guys! Im so excited you are on my page and all the cool and amazing art I have to offer!
For as long as I can remember I have been creating art. It is part of who I am and a HUGE part of my everyday life. I attended The Illinois Institute of Art in Chicago and received my BFA in Visual Communications. From there I got into the world of designing video games and had a 15 year career with EA Sports making all sorts of art for games.
As much as I love digital computer art, sometimes ya need to get off the box and slap some paint on a canvas or two!
I started my paint party business in Texas about 9 years ago and was completely mobile. Moving to my native hometown of Quincy, Il around year 2 and bringing my business with me life was great! That is until COVID hit and small businesses took a hit.
Not one to stay down long I pivoted, got my own private studio and began teaching again in smaller groups and online! The community responded amazing and I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE teaching and sharing art with everyone!
I do hope you enjoy The Enchanted Canvas and all the classes, artwork and projects here. You will find monthly local paint party events that you can sign up for, art to-go kits that you can enjoy from the comfort of your own home complete with video tutorials and also finished projects you can purchase that are ready to display!
Custom designs are ALWAYS welcome and feel free to reach out to me with any questions!
