Going with the Flow
Born in the mid 1960’s in southern Louisiana, Julie Siracusa discovered at an early age to express herself through art. Siracusa’s mother was an expert seamstress who was a major influence that encouraged Siracusa to create whenever she wanted to express herself. Siracusa knew she was an artist as long as she can remember…creative expression is not just a desire…it’s her way of life.
Because of Siracusa’s interests, college brought the study of architecture and fine art at the University of Southwest Louisiana in Lafayette which gave her the training and tools that paved the way to her passion of conveying water and its beauty from her point of view.
After college, Siracusa worked as a graphic designer where she took on freelance projects and began to establish a client base. During this time, Siracusa was asked to curate a group of local artists which she named “Artists of Acadiana”. This group included local artists and members from the Acadiana Symphony Orchestra who performed at gallery openings. Siracusa’s love of art and music flows expressively onto canvas.
In 1996 she started Siracusa Design and specialized in branding companies with strong images that anchor them well in the business community to this day. In recent years, Siracusa has chosen to dedicate more time to her true passion, fine art, painting specifically.
Siracusa has enjoyed travel expanding from the US Coast to Europe and the Caribbean where she discovered her love of water and inspiration for her current work.
Siracusa developed her unique technique through exploring realism. She had a self-imposed belief that an abstract artist must master realism before embarking on abstraction. Her studies of the great masters of architecture and art led her to drawing and painting details of notable architecture and sculpture along with her original creations. When asked about her artistic influence, Siracusa prefaced her response with talking about the architects and artists that she admires. Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Bernini, Le Corbusier, Gaudi and Botta to name a few. That said, these artists gave her the vision for her current technique and style. After many works in graphite, oil pastel, mosaic tile, clay, wire sculpture, acrylic and oil on canvas, Siracusa’s true technique and style came to life. All of this study and honing of her skills led her to painting her early love of water. The colorful reflections, the driven currents and the shear energy of H2O has launched her into great depths of fluid exploration. She is navigating her way into a minimalistic abys of creative originality.
Most recently, Siracusa discovered No Shoes Reefs, created by Kenny Chesney, to raise awareness and support for our ocean habitat. She recognized instantly that she wanted to partner with the group as an artist. She is currently an active partner creating original art and graphics that are donated to help raise awareness and funds. These projects include creations for marine laboratories, Coastal Conservation Association and graphics for No Shoes Reefs partners. A percentage of the sales of this merchandise goes to Reef Ball Foundation and Reef Innovations that coordinate with agencies around the world to rebuild diminishing reef systems. Siracusa has noted that her work with No Shoes Reefs has energized her creativity and has even created an evolution in her work.
