I am a sci-fi nut who loves to oil paint. I enjoy painting the darker stuff and even dabble in a little sculpture. I taught myself to paint, but did attend a few college art course. However I found that just devoting endless hours to my work led to some pretty big advances. I'm always looking for neat stuff to fuel my inspiration.

Being a Philadelphia native, art is a common subject. My love for creating art began as a child and I have been obsessively honoring my skills ever since. Capturing the character and emotion of my subject has always been key. I am a professional self-taught artist specializing in hand drawn graphite a colored pencil portraits. I really enjoy working in all mediums-particularly prisma colored pencils, to express my interpretation of my subjects. You can see my artwork in private collectors home throughout the United States. To be able to take a blank piece of paper and transfer it to a captivating piece is an amazing process. Its about rendering the character and essence of my subject not merely creating a likeness. Portraiture fills me with a a sense of contentment and gives me a way to express my inner vision. As an artist it gives me great satisfaction knowing I can create something for someone to cherish for a lifetime.

My experience has led me through diverse settings, from the Central American rainforest to a desk in DC at the Environmental Protection Agency. Whether through academic investigation, reporting innovations in sustainability, or spoken word; I have always been passionate about telling a good story. We learn vicariously through stories; they are at the base of communicating intent in social media campaigns, proposals, press releases, and reports. I have worked in development, marketing, presentation design, research, and coordination in organizations ranging in size from start-up to national network. Varied writing and editing experience, in English and Spanish, has allowed me to navigate different sets of parameters, both individually and as part of a team. The resulting flexibility will help me adjust to your needs and accentuate the unique aspects of the story you want to convey to your audience.

My name is Julia Austin and I've written hundreds of articles on luxury lifestyle, travel, fashion+beauty, dating+*** and healthy living for various media outlets. My content appears regularly on Yahoo!Shine, Discovery's PlanetGreen, COEDMagazine, VitalJuice.com, BettyConfidential and QuickieChick.com. And then there are the books. I have worked with two authors helping to ghost write and edit their books. The first, a lifestyle book for recent female college graduates on everything you need to know once you’re finally a “grown up” from how to negotiate rent and salary to what gift to bring to your boyfriend’s mother. I write in an effervescent, relatable, authoritative yet self-deprecating-enough tone that engages and instills trust in my readers. The second book is a dating book authored by a relationship psychologist. This book teaches women to get over the idea that there is only one man out there who will be a good match. Reviewing hundreds of case studies and research done by the psychologist, I translated information into an easy-to-read and positive narrative about learning which traits to look for in a potential partner. Public Relations firms have also hired me to write press releases for clients in various industries including personal training, nutrition, life coaching, fashion design and beauty. Further work with these clients included managing their social media outreach by overseeing Facebook pages, posting relevant content in the form of articles and videos and provoking community conversation by posting engaging and relevant topics and questions and answering follower comments.
