“I love the outdoors, my paintings are inspired by my backpacking experiences in the Sierras, vacations around the world, historical sites, majestic landscapes, flowers, my grandchildren, and in fact almost everything around me.  I never know what will catch my eye and inspire me to paint.  I love to learn new techniques and processes, so I paint constantly.  It is my passion.”

“Don’t put off tomorrow what you can do today” is a motto Juliana Tillman feels is important, basically - life is short. She began making art a focus in 2011 before anymore time could pass without regret.
 An interest in art and design has been there since her late teens though she was unable to make it a priority. Growing up in a family of antique and art collectors fostered her appreciation for fine arts.  With no formal art education she is primarily self taught, with the exception of studying with local & nationally known artist through workshops and private classes. Juliana is an oil and watercolor painter and has won many awards in local art competitions. Recently her watercolor painting was accepted into the Splash 18 Watercolor by Northlight Books. Currently a member of the Mother Lode Arts Association and the Aloft Art Gallery.
